    Yellow headlights ( aka plastic headlight restoration kit question)

    Hi All ( and Happy new year!),

    Quick question - I have used the meguiars plastic headlight restoration kit a number of times on my old Lexus at this stage but the "yellowness" keeps coming back after a few months. I have heard that there is a clear lacquer that you can get to spray on to the lights after using the headlight restoration kit but can not find it anywhere.

    Does anyone know where I might get the clear lacquer for this??

    Thanks!

    I use a good quality wax. Most would have UV protection. Seems to work for me when I do headlights.

    Is that Meguairs kit designed to be applied with elbow grease or with a polisher of some kind? I didn't think it would be possible to get decent results without high speed application using pads of some sort.

    Meguiars do a headlight restoration kit which comes with pads which you attach to a drill to help polish the headlights

    Ahhh, any old common or garden drill? Makes sense now.

    Be careful when using a rotary device like a drill or rotary polisher though - very easy to burn the plastic (I've done this!). I've had better success with a DA polisher (DAS 6 Pro) - you can more safely lean on that without as much risk of damage.

    There is a video somewhere on Youtube where a guy used WD40 and paper kitchen towels to make his lights clear again.6 months later they were still perfect.

    I've had good results using the autoglym headlight kit.

    I used brasso to refurb the lenses on a Primera before. Did the job well.
