How to Restore Faded Headlights for less than $20

In this video, I show you guys how to restore the HORRIBLY nasty and faded headlights on the golf. I bought this 3M restoration kit for less than 20 bucks and it does wonders. Ideally, if you have access to more sandpaper and better tools, by all means use them, however this inexpensive kit really made a world of a difference.

Depending on the stage of how bad your headlights are, you will begin with different grades of sandpaper. So if they are very bad like these ones, I started with 400 grit, and then proceeded to use finer and finer sandpaper. If they aren’t as bad, you will not have to start with something as aggressive as 400. You could being with perhaps 800 grit.

Something to note is that the headlights get damaged and start to fade due to UV exposure. That means that the more they are exposed to the UV rays, without any protection the faster they will begin to yellow and fade. Something to note is that wax and even clear coat are UV resistant. So when your sealant or wax that is on your headlights wears, the headlights will be bare and begin to fade again. If you decide to spray your headlights in a UV resistant clear coat, they won’t yellow and fade. That is why if you want to take this DIY one step further, you can spray the headlights after you’ve polished them with the rubbing compound, with a plastidip clear coat, similar to the link below. 3 coats of the clear coat will do you wonders.
