Headlight restoration can improve the vision while you are driving at night. However, you will have to spend a considerable amount of money to get it done by a professional service provider. Let’s take a look at the article of Instructables.
How to Restore Your Headlights
This is my first instructable, so I hope all goes well.
Headlights begin to fade over time, and there’s no way around it. As your headlights fade, the amount of light that makes it out of the headlight becomes less, and before you know it, driving at night becomes difficult, but more importantly, dangerous. This is due to oxidation on the lens. Once oxidation begins to take place, it quickly degrades the headlight lens, because polycarbonate is a porous material. Wet sanding (what we will be doing) helps to remove this oxidation and restore your headlights to a safer condition.
I have been restoring headlights now (mine and a few friends and family) for quite some time, and I feel that the knowledge should be passed to others. So without further adieu, let’s get started.
What you will need:
-Sand Paper with values: 800, 1000, and 2000 grit.
-A Small Towel, Rag, or Microfiber Cloth
-3M Rubbing Compund
-Automotive Masking tape
-A Drill (corded or cordless)
-Compound Pad (Wool pad works as well), with drill adapter
-A Spray Bottle with Water
-A Small Measuring Cup (one you don’t use for food)
-Minwax’s Helmsman Spar Urethane : Clear Gloss.You need this specific kind.
-Odorless Mineral Spirits
-2 to 3 Hours put aside (depending on your attention to detail)
