Well Worth The Money
I was really Impressed with this product. I was kinda worried about the sanding and such but when you hook it up to your drill and just make passes with that it makes it verry easy. The instructions were verry accurate so I would recommend to just read them through every step before you do it. The longer you take on them the Better they will look.

Excellent Restoration

Read loads of positive reviews, and indeed, this product works like a charm. i couple of things to keep in mind, you have to make your own judgement on how long to sand for, that's the only downside. I suggest sanding for about 5-8 minutes with each pad. Product is color coded which makes it easy to identify which sanding pads to use. Sanding can be dusty, depending on how yellow your lights are, but you should expect that since you are sanding with a power tool. Masking tape is NOT included, so make sure you get your own, you need, and don't try to avoid it, its a must if you want to keep your paint job. My lights now look new, and i mean new, and i get better visibility when driving at night now. This was money and 2 hours of my time well spent. see my before and after photo, you cant beat this.

What A Money Saver!

A must try! I have to admit, I was very skeptical of this product, but I had nothing to loose. After finding out how much it was going to cost me to replace both my headlight Len's on my 2004 Pontiac Vibe ($140-$180 each) I decided that for less than $20 if this product did not work I was only out 20 bucks. OMG, I was so impressed and I saved at least $280. I even posted it to my facebook page for others to see. Only thing I will suggest is make sure to use a "electric" drill or have a couple charged batteries for your cordless. Mine did not hold a charge long enough to complete the project for both sides. Thank you Helen

Amazing Quality and Price!

The 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System brought back the life in my 2010 Ford Mustang's headlights. This system removed 10 years of sun damage and left my headlights sparkling clean! The kit includes high- quality sanding sheets, a drill attachment, a buffer pad, and a buffing solution. As long as you take your time, this system will make any headlights look brand-new! It took a total of 2 and 1/2 hours to refinish my headlights, but this was due to their rough condition. Don't waste time deciding if you should buy this system! It is well worth the money! (I recommend buying an additional headlight clear-coat or sealant in addition to this system, or buy a 3M kit instead of a system) I bought this kit as a last resort to buying brand new headlights, but the result ended up just as good as new! (See Pictures)

1. I did two cars, which was four headlight lenses. Enough product left to probably do a third.
by atwoodnative
2. It easily does 2 headlights with some of the first stage pads left over. If you really were extra careful, you might be able to do 3 but I think 4 would be a struggle. The last sanding pad (the polish pad) only has one in the kit, so I think that would be your limiting factor. Also depends on how bad your headlights are, as the worse they are the more sanding required.
by northofsomewhere
3. I did 3 and can probably do 3 more so 3 sets of headlights.
by Sleeper8
4. I did two lenses with one kit, then bought some headlight polish from a competitor and had enough sandpaper to do my other car. The results were very impressive.
by jackassofalltrades
5. If they were as yellowed as mine, one set.
by cactus68
6. Two large worn out lenses. Maybe more if the lenses are smaller or not really worn out.
by SkiRaceGeek
7. It finished 2 in bad shape for me.
by Lieb4
8. There is enough compound to do probably 10 headlights. They give you enough disks to do probably 4-6 headlights.
by PDizzyD
9. I got it to do both... no problems.
by HskerInID
10. In theory, you can do two lenses with one kit. However, severe scratches or wear will probably only get you through one.
by NightGyr
11. Did both mine with left over
by Homepeach
12. 1pair of lenses. If you conserve or don't have very faded lenses then you may be able to do two pair. But mostly just one pair will be possible with one kit

1. Yes this will help, a LOT. Just follow the instructions!
by snatch101
2. My headlights looked like what you are describing; patchy frosted places on the headlight lens that seemed to go away when wet. The kit restored the lens to a clear, like-new condition. Definitely would recommend this product.
by johnatwm
3. Yes, it will even correct any problem from the kit you used prior (if any) and completely remove the foggy, dingy look of the oxidized plastic. Don't rush through it, let the drill do the work (don't apply too much pressure) and keep the surface lubricated with water and your headlights will look as close to new as you could want when they are polished out.
by An anonymous customer
4. Yes -- mine were in the same condition and they are now crystal-clear. The product is amazing and well worth the price.
by MrBoats
5. This product only works on the surface.
by Raskolnik
6. I believe that it will. If the lenses feel rough it is probably the outside that is the problem. This will smooth and polish them, and they will be clearer. I used it on some very yellowed and rough lenses and it did great.
by rmphoto
7. You will be amazed what this will do for your frosted headlights!
by TheFlyingHillBilly
8. Follow the directions and they will look good s new. Mine were pretty foggy and now they are clear as glass.
by RazorJim
9. I believe so. B'coz this kit comes with sanding paper and it require you to remove a layer from that foggy plastic cover surface. Don't worry of sanding because it comes with polishing compound as well. Just follow the instructions given in the pack and when it comes to sanding don't hesitate to remove a good layer of plastic!
by pakaya
10. If they look clear when you wet them, than I'm assuming the damage is on the outside of the lens. So yes this kit will help. Just be sure to follow instructions, including using a good CORDED drill that runs around 1400rpm. See my review for pics of how bad my car was, and what I was able to do with this kit. If your's only look frosted, you'll have an easy go at it. Mine were yellowed badly with alot of crazing and pitting, and you can see how it turned out. Nothing short of amazing!
by ferret13sj
11. This kit is made to restore the outside of your headlight. Usually the frosting is on the outside of the lens because of the weather elements. If the frosting is on the outside it will make them clear and look almost brand new.
by XtremeBowHunter
12. Mine were the same. This worked.

1. Absolutely. I had the same appearance on my wife's Honda Civic (6 years of wear and tear).
by OjedaLive
2. absolutely
by dozer9222
3. yes
by thebigrossman
4. If the scratches are light, yes it will. You will just need to polish them with the 500 grit media longer until you can't see the scratches anymore. Clean the sanding media with a blast of compressed air if you have a lot to do. I think you'll be pleased with the kit's performance. Just carefully follow the instructions and be patient. It'll be worth your effort.
by shjones
5. It should mine were pretty bad and it worked. Also, it is Wal-Mart if it does not work; return it. They have great customer service and return policies.
by PhysicsDad
6. All it requires is patience and diligence. You'll be amazed at the result.
by rabbilen
7. I just purchased an 07 Eclipse that had one cloudy lens, and this kit made the lens look like new. I have a couple of deep scratches about 1/4 of an inch long that were too deep to sand out, but they are hardly noticeable. All the cloudiness in the lens is gone and it looks sweet.
by Raptozilla
8. Yes, you will sand the scratches right out as part of the process. You'll definitely notice the improvement!
by frekwentflier
9. Yep! It takes about two hours to do a set of headlights though, so be sure you have enough time. When you're finished, be sure to wax your lenses to restore a protective coating. Warning: this works be removing a layer of the plastic on your lenses. be careful when you use it.
by mporto
10. yes it will! it has some sanding pads that you will use to get the fogging, yellowing and scratches out before you polish the lens
by boagieman
11. Yes. It may take a little longer sanding with the first 500 grit wheel, but it got rid of all the scratches I had.
by EngrProf
12. If the scratches are not deep, they will take care of the scratches. You actually sand down the lens which causes fine scratches. With each pad the scratches become finer until it because mostly clear (has a little haze). Then you polish it and it's crystal clear. Just take your time and don't push down hard.
