Default Re: Best do-it-yourself Headlight restoration ?

Hello to all,

Headlight refinishing can be a tricky thing. The "like new" results you see expect has a lot to do with materials, chemicals, and method. Most of the easy DIY methods you read about are only temporary fixes and won't last. Even the "off the shelf" kits don't live up to the expectations of the average DIY'er in terms of results and longevity.

I have been refinishing headlights for about eight years and work with various new car dealers and used car lots. I have even had customers send me their headlights and return them totally refinished and ready to put back on their car.

The PT Cruiser is among the top cars that can have badly deteriorated lenses. But their in good company with VW, Nissan, and Jeep just to name a few.

If theres something I can do to help just shoot me an email or message.

-James

Thumbs up Re: Best do-it-yourself Headlight restoration ?

Honorable Son #3 races his Subaru SCCA and Road Courses.
He just used, and swears by the 3M restoration kit.
This new kit does include the UV protective clearcoat.

This guy, "James", posts all over the internet with SPAM like this for his business. His phone number is (631) 880-6697. You can always just give him a call and let him know how you feel about his SPAM cluttering up this forum.
