How to Restore Headlights PERMANENTLY



Headlight Restoration using Clear Coat. This video will show you how to clean and restore your headlights so they will never turn yellow or hazy again! You have seen videos on restoring headlights with bug spray, toothpaste, baking soda, and the kits you buy in the store, but all of these methods are temporary and eventually the haze and oxidation will come back.
My method will first make the headlight clear by wet sanding and then put a UV coat on it to seal it in.

  • After 3 coats of clear gloss… There is some haziness from paint I believe. What shall I do to get absolutely clear glass now?

  • Clear coat on headlights is NOT a good idea. It messes up the light output because of refraction. It would be better to put some protective foil on them. Clear coat is simply too thick to be used as coating.

  • How to restore headlights PERMANENTLY? No such thing. Nothing in life is permanent. Everything requires maintenance and upkeep. Aside from that, never sand down a polycarbonate unless absolutely necessary. Sanding is a last resort step. Lastly, and most importantly, never apply a sealant or clear coat. Never. Ever.Worst thing you can do a lens. Inevitably, it will always dry out, crack and peel off. When that happens, restoring it again is extremely difficult and costly. Terrible advice all around. Find a headlight restoration expert, not a car detailer or other non expert, and they can restore them properly for less than $100. Best money you'll ever spend.

  • Hey Chris, For buying new/aftermarket headlights or maybe taillights, before installing them, would it be okay to spray them down with the clearcoat spray? Since they would be brand new.

  • I do 600, 800, 1500, then wet 3000 with a 6" DA then hit it with a buffer around 2,500 rpm with rubbing compound (3M 06085) and step 2 polish (3M 06064) and it gives amazing results.

  • Hey I recently tried this and the clear coat was milky in colour, what did I do wrong?

  • First off – you never sand in circles. Ever. On anything.

    Second – you dont use plain water. Add a drop of dish soap for lubricant, using only water the paper wont glide correctly and you have to constantly spray while sanding.

    Third – 400 grit is absurdly rough for refinishing headlights. 1000 grit is plenty to start on most, finish with 2000 then rubbing compound, up to polishing compound.

    I invented this shit back in the day. 23 million views, wow.

  • the turtle wax headlight kit also works as well and can be 10 dollars and sometimes even cheaper and does pretty much the same steps as what chris does.

  • Works great! One thing though – if I get runs in the clearcoat, can I wet sand them out or do I have to start over?
