The 3M Lens Renewal Kit is an easy, 3-step lens polishing kit that removes yellowing and haze and restores clarity to plastic headlights and taillights. The kit includes 3M premium masking tape for easy DIY repair. The 3M Lens Renewal Kit utilizes the power of your electric drill to restore most headlights in as little as an hour!
Plastic lenses can yellow with age, reducing headlight brightness. Dull headlights fail to illuminate as far as they should, meaning you're only seeing part of the picture. To improve your safety while driving, use the 3M Lens Renewal Kit to restore yellow, hazy headlights.
Use the 3M Lens Renewal Kit on plastic headlights, taillights, trailers, snowmobiles, emergency vehicle light bars, plastic motorcycle lights and more. This kit is easy enough for just about anyone to use. By restoring your headlights yourself, you save hundreds of dollars on professional restoration or replacement, and - most importantly - you improve nighttime driving visibility.
The 3M Lens Renewal Kit utilizes 3M abrasive technology to sand, refine, and polish plastic lenses. Just three steps! This process completely restores the appearance and function of plastic headlights. The kit includes 3M's 25' Masking Tape PN 0000. This tape protects the paint surrounding the headlights or taillights and it peels off easily. You'll get professional results at home, saving you time and money!
Your headlights should illuminate the road approximately 200 ft. in front of your vehicle. If they don't, you need the 3M Lens Renewal Kit! Don't let another night go by with cloudy, ineffective headlights. Your safety depends on it.
Wipe off the headlight to remove any loose dirt. Tape off the surrounding paint with the included 3M Masking Tape PN 0000.
Put the backing plate onto the drill. Press the yellow P500 grit disc against the backing plate. Use light to medium pressure and work back and forth to remove scratches and yellowing. When the disc is no longer effective, turn off the drill and attach a new P500 grit disc and continue working until defects are removed.
Next, attach the P800 grit white abrasive disc to remove scratches from previous step. Again, work with light to medium pressure After this step, the headlight should look frosted.
Apply P3000 Trizact™ Foam Disc. Mist the disc with a water bottle. Use light to medium pressure to sand the lens cover. You'll see a white slurry as you polish. Continue with 4-6 passes after the white slurry appears. Wipe the headlight lens with a Microfiber Detailing Cloth and inspect your work. Any remaining scratches should be very fine at this point. If not, repeat this step.
Attach the orange foam compounding pad. Dispense a dime size amount of 3M headlight lens polish onto the pad and spread over the lens with the machine turned off to avoid splatter. Polish the lens until the lens is clear and smooth. Wipe the lens clean with a Microfiber Detailing Cloth (sold separately).
To protect your lenses from future oxidation, use Wolfgang Plastik Surface Sealant (sold separately). The clear coating will guard against UV rays, moisture, and dirt.

this kit did a great job of resurfacing the exterior surface of the plastic headlight lens on my 2001 Dodge Ram. Now I just need something for the inside of the lens.
Quick and not hard to do at all.

I had one headlight that looked dull compared to the other and decided it was worth a shot to try this on it. It worked great, and the end result is as clear as the other light--the only difference I can tell is that water beads on the polished headlight whereas it sheets off the other. I'd suggest to have plenty of batteries charged for your drill; I think I used 4 in total on one headlight.

I have tried other headlight restoring products without much succcess but this one really worked! I was a little nervous sanding the headlight lenses but I followed the instructions and the results were teriffic! I bought three kits and did three cars all with excellent results!

3M Lens Renewal Kit

This is first review I have ever written about a product online. The product worked just how it is advertised; GREAT!
I was able to do 3 vehicles with one kit. My neighbor and I were amazed at how well it worked!
I would recommend this product. I would also recommend taking an old sheet or towel and drape it over the front of the car around your work area. It reduces the splatter on your vehicle!

Lesser & more expensive kits on the shelf, I bought it because of the 3M label. I am convinced sanding is the only way to fix badly worn lenses as they have been damaged by "road grit". I spent about 30 minutes on each lens and they came out next to new. Don't waste $$ on a product that only uses a cloth with polish.
