So...here's the trick. Get yourself a foam polishing cone, and an electric drill and then apply the product! Using the compounds provided in the Turtle Wax kit, my headlights were literally "like new" in about 15 - 20 minutes of powered polishing. I couldn't believe it.
As a side note, no matter how careful you are, you'll splatter some of the compound onto the hood of your car if you don't tape on some butcher's paper or newspaper in advance. If the polishing compound gets on your car's paint and dries, it is VERY hard to get off. So, wipe your car down when using this technique or get some newspaper and painter's tape and more thoroughly cover the hood of your vehicle.
Great product, great lady. :)
My before pics look much more clear than the actual headlights did outside; somehow my camera 'fixed' some of the cloudiness and yellowing, and so I guess other pics here had the same issue: they didn't really show how bad the lights were. Amazing how the camera couldn't really show how bad they were. But the after pics show they are very clear. They look almost new, they've got to be at least 90% - 95% as clear as they were when brand new on my used 2009 Toyota Yaris.
So here is what I did (the entire process was 1.5 hours):
1) Ordered the Turtle Wax Headlight Lens Restorer kit from Amazon.
2) Purchased some very cheap terry cloths, plus the cheapest blue painter's tape I could find at Wal-Mart (for under $2.50 - Clean Release Painter's Tape from DuckBrand)
3) Checked the weather to make sure it would be clear, dry, and little-to-no wind for the day. Read all the instructions on the Restorer Kit thee times.
4) Step 1 (on the back of the box): Cleaned the headlights with Windex (I'm sure any method would work; I cleaned them twice to remove all dirt from the headlights and from the car body around the where I would tape).
5) The instructions say to work on one lense at a time (up to Step 3; I did that, although I taped the second headlight while waiting for the clarifying compound on the first to dry)
6) Taped all around the first headlight, making sure the tape covered the car body close to and under the edges of the headlight lens. During the process some of the chemicals dripped onto parts of the car body, but it was easy to wipe off and didn't appear to do any damage. So taping is good, but I don't think it absolutely has to be done perfectly.
7) Step 2 (back of the box): Applied the Lens Clarifying Compound as instructed, was amazed at how quickly the yellowing was removed, but there was still some cloudiness and some portions I was sure couldn't be fixed (but I was surprised after the last step!!).
8) The lens wasn't totally clear, so I followed Steps 2a, 2b, and 2c (from the back of the box). I was concerned about part of the lens being too cloudy (there was an edge that separated the clear part of the lens from the cloudy), but the lens was at least 70% to 75% clear, so I was mostly excited. But I repeated steps 2a - 2c to see if it would help, and I afterward I thought it actually looked slightly worse; some of the cloudiness was still there, with the partially-cloudly portion still there. But I wasn't finished, so I kept hoping.
9) On to the second lens; I finished taping it and followed 6), 7), and 8). I only did 8) once, and this lens (which was more yellow and cloudy than the other) actually looked pretty good, but I could still see a cloudy portion. It was maybe 80% clear, though, so I figured that should be good enough.
10) Now the miracle in Step 3 (back of the box)! I put on the flimsy plastic glove (it served its purpose) and wiped both lenses with the pad in the Lens Base Coat Wipe packet. I wasn't sure how to wipe it, and the chemical seemed just a tad thicker than I expected, but hoped maybe the last pad would fix things. Before opening the next packet (the Lens Sealing Wipe), I noticed the instructions on the back to wipe each lens back and forth... and I couldn't believe the results! Everything became crystal clear, the cloudy area and the edge that separated it from the rest of the lens just disappeared.
I couldn't be happier with the results!! So as others said before, the headlights will look a bit worse before you are finished, but they look almost new, except for some deeper scratches and wear and tear from 7 years of use.
Follow the instructions and this should work for you, too!!
My 20 year old Honda Civic's headlights have seen better days. The lenses were cloudy, yellowed and dim at night.
I didn't even have to go through all the steps to see an almost total transformation of my headlights. No sanding necessary - just the first step and the lights looked almost new.
I've used headlight restoration solution in the past, and this was significantly easier and better. I have enough to do the process maybe 3-4 times.
Great value, great results! Check out my pics for a comparison.
