Our Review

One downside of having plastic lenses is that, over time, they can become discoloured and faded. This can have a negative effect on the quality and light output delivered by the bulbs.

If you're upgrading your vehicle headlight bulbs, you should assess your vehicle's headlight unit and ensure that it's in a good condition. If it's discoloured or scratched, the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit is a simple, low cost way to restore your lens. Simply follow the detailed instructions and attach to a drill – everything you need is included in the kit.

Manufacturer's Review

Product Description

In the past, replacing scratched, clouded or yellowed plastic headlight covers was an expensive necessity in order to preserve safety. But now with the 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System, car and motorcycle owners can shine and restore plastic lenses — including headlights, tail lights, fog and directional lights — to like-new condition for a fraction of the cost. This kit includes everything needed to restore two headlight lenses, excluding the user-supplied household drill (1200-1600 rpm), automotive tape, clean cloth, and spray bottle.

Clouded Plastic Headlights

Plastic surfaces are great for giving vehicles lightweight, durable components – from plastic headlight lenses to motorcycle windshields, plastic tail lights, trailers and more. But these plastic components can yellow and haze with weather, sun and sand, limiting visibility and diminishing the appearance and value of the vehicle. While the impact on a vehicle's value varies, the dangers in terms of limited visibility are clear: It is a factor in 2.8 million accidents, 23,000 fatal crashes and 2,300 pedestrian deaths each year, according to the Motor Vehicle Lighting Council. Dim headlight bulbs and hazy plastic headlight lenses or surfaces may lead to this reduced visibility, putting you, your passengers and other cars at risk. The AAIA Car Care Council found that 26 percent of the cars it inspected had issues with their lighting system. Millions of cars on the road today have plastic headlight lenses. The problem increases with the age of the lens, and with the average age of cars on the road about 10 years old, the problem is growing. Yet there is something you can do about it.

The Do-It-Yourself Solution

The 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System is designed to give do-it-yourselfers an easy and affordable way to repair their vehicle's plastic lens surfaces. Containing various graded sanding pads, pad holders, buffing pads, polish and detailed instructions, it includes everything users need to turn their household drill into a low cost solution to this dangerous automotive problem. The Lens Renewal Kit can also be used to repair hazing on other plastic surfaces, including taillights, emergency light bars, plastic motorcycle lights, trailers, snowmobiles and more. 

How Does it Work?

The steps for using the 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System are as easy as 1-2-3. First, sand the hazed surface in a two-stage wet sanding process with the enclosed sanding pads until the surface is smooth and the dulled layer is removed. Then polish with the 3M plastic polish, and buff with the buffing pad to the level of clarity desired in the plastic. In addition to a standard household drill mentioned (1200-1600 rpm) used in the buffing process, you will also need 3M Automotive Masking Tape to protect the body panels of your car surrounding the work area, and a spray bottle and water used in the wet sanding process. Otherwise, everything that you need is included in the kit.

Features

  • 3M abrasive technology and a polishing compound to restore hazy and dull headlight lenses, as well as other plastic lens surfaces on your vehicle.
  • System is intended to restore two headlight lenses.
  • Utilizes the muscle power of a common household (1200-1600 rpm) drill to do all the necessary sanding and buffing.
  • This inexpensive kit saves hundreds of dollars and restores crucial night time visibility by restoring your own lenses.
  • Easy, 3-step process requires as little as an hour to remove scratches and restore cloudy, dull lenses.

3M Headlight Lens Restoration System

5 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System - Amazing

I used the 3M Lens restoration system on my 2 of my boat gauges the lenses were all frosted and I couldn't see the screen at all. I used this kit and it took 20 minutes per gauge and they came up looking brand new, I couldn't believe how clear they were. Very happy and would highly recommend this product.
