I was pretty surprised by the price of some headlight restorer kits. I really want to clean up the headlights on a few of my cars but whats so special about the kits? I have a bunch of old headlights in the garage attic so I looked around the shelves and found a bottle of Plexiglass polish and a bottle of John Deere Spray Detailer. A couple of light passes on a standard cloth buffing wheel mounted on my bench motor yielded pretty good results. I don’t know if the rouge that was already on the wheel contributed to the shine. I have another set up there so I’ll try those too. I think I’ll post these on Craigslist now.
Here is the first one done. Pretty good compared to the other.
