The ultimate solution to dull, clouded plastic headlight lenses.
The Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit contains three products that are proven to clarify OEM polycarbonate lens covers, acrylic, Plexiglas, and other hard, unpainted plastics. Our trials have shown that the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit increases the amount of light reaching the road by up to 80%. Scratches are reduced by as much as 60%. But the impact on your driving safety is immeasurable!
Today’s headlight lens covers are made of polycarbonate, a hard, impact-resistant plastic. While polycarbonate is more resilient than the glass lenses of several years ago, it can dull and yellow in a matter of 1-3 years. Most Americans own their vehicles for an average of five years. The average driver spends two years on the road with ineffective headlights!
Dull, ineffective headlight lenses are a bigger safety risk than you might think. Clouded lenses can reduce the amount of light illuminating the road by as much as 90%. The oxidized plastic refracts the light that is passing through the lens cover, creating a glare that is distracting to other drivers. Your vehicle’s headlights should light the road at least 150 feet in front of you. If they do not, you do not have enough advance visual warning to avoid a potentially dangerous and expensive accident.
The Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit includes:
4 oz. Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer
4 oz. Diamondite Clear Plastic Restorer
4 oz. Diamondite Clear Plastic Liquid Armor
4 inch Yellow Foam Cutting Pad
4 inch Orange Foam Light Cutting Pad
2 3/4 inch backing plate
Cobra Microfiber Towel
The Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit is designed for anyone to improve the appearance and function of their headlights using just an electric drill. Save yourself the cost of replacing lenses or having them professionally refinished. You will be amazed at the dramatic improvement you can make on your vehicle’s headlights.
Clear Plastic Enhancer
Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer is step one in the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit. This cleaner/polish removes fine scratches and haze from clouded plastic headlight lenses and other hard plastic surfaces. Specially milled diminishing abrasives combined with lubricants and cleaners all work to smooth and clarify cloudy lenses. Clear Plastic Enhancer lifts dirt and oils out of hairline scratches as the abrasives level the edges to reduce their appearance. Like a premium car polish, Clear Plastic Enhancer cleans and smoothes headlight lenses and leaves a clear, shiny surface.
Clear Plastic Restorer
Diamondite Clear Plastic Restorer is the second step in the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit. This is a very fine grade finishing glaze that restores the shine and optical clarity to polished headlight lens covers and other hard plastics. While Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer is the heavy-hitter, Diamondite Clear Plastic Restorer is the gentle finishing touch that finesses the plastic back to its factory-new appearance.
Clear Plastic Liquid Armor
Diamondite Clear Plastic Liquid Armor protects the newly restored headlight lens from future oxidation and UV damage with durable polymers. Polymers fill in the microscopic grooves and pores of the plastic to completely block out moisture, dirt, and UV radiation. Clear Plastic Liquid Armor contains the strongest UV shield available in a plastic protectant. This water-based formula will not dry out plastic surfaces, and it leaves a clear, protective gloss that lasts for months.
Before you begin…
Tape off the area surrounding the headlights using painter’s tape. Clean off any loose debris using Diamondite Perfect Vision Glass Cleaner and a soft microfiber towel. Screw the drill adapter into the included backing plate and tighten with a wrench. Insert the adapter into your electric drill and tighten the chuck.
Step 1 – Clear Plastic Enhancer
Press the included yellow cutting pad onto the backing plate. Apply Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer™ in an X pattern across the pad. If you are using a drill or rotary polisher, set the maximum speed at 1800 RPM. Work in an overlapping motion until cleaner breaks down into a clear film. Work up and down and side to side. There is no need to apply pressure to the machine. Use the included soft microfiber towel to remove residue. Severely stained or scratched lenses may require a second treatment.
Step 2 – Clear Plastic Restorer
Remove the yellow cutting pad and attach the included orange light cutting pad. Dispense Clear Plastic Restorer in an X pattern across the orange pad. Work at a speed of 1800 RPM on your electric drill. Move the pad up and down and side to side for complete coverage. When the polish starts to dry, turn off the drill and slowly lift it off the headlight lens cover. Wipe the headlight clean with the included microfiber towel. Repeat step 2 if necessary.
Step 3 – Clear Plastic Liquid Armor
Mist the headlight lens with Clear Plastic Liquid Armor. Two or three pumps should be enough to cover the lens. Use a microfiber towel to spread the sealant over the lens and flip the towel to buff dry. Allow the sealant to cure for an hour and then apply another coat if desired.
Maintain the clear shine of your polished plastic headlights with Diamondite Plasti-Care Plastic Cleaner, Polish & Protectant. One kit treats approximately 6-8 pairs of headlights. At less than $10 per pair of headlights, the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit is a terrific value!
Add on a Dual Action Adapter for just $4.99. This adapter allows you to use the backing plate in this kit with your dual action polisher. Note:Tighten the adapter into the backing plate using a ¾ inch wrench.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
Fast and efficient at removing minor wear.

The diamondite clear plastic system is a quick and easy way to remove minor oxidation and light scratches. But be warned is not very effective when it comes to moderate and heavy wear on more expensive/upper end vehicles such as an E46 in this case.
Fast and efficient removal of minor pitting and wear. Also works well on fog lights.
Plastic liquid armor seems to be working well so far.
Would not recommend for applications in need of full restoration or that have headlights with a thick protective outer layer (polycarbonate) unless you would like to wet sand the entire headlight first!
I would recommend this item to a friend.

This product did a pretty good job on one of my headlamps however the other which may have been too far gone it did half the job...
I am not completely disappointed and I will reapply to see if this completes the job I was looking for.

I bought this hoping that it would restore my headlights to new condition.
It didn't... But it did bring back a lot of clarity to my headlights.
This is by far the best product I've used to clean my headlights.
I would recommend buying this.
I would also recommend using a clay bar on your headlights to make this product work better than if you didn't.

Listen and learn from me and save some money. First i tried those as seen on tv. headlight restoration...doesn't work, then other products , then turtle wax hr -sort of kind of works, then meguiars and rainx restore-works a little, then i gave up and just bought the most expensive one diamondite...listen it works the first time . Every penny was worth it! I used it once with the other brands i would use whole bottles or countless times with little results. The best by far is diamondite followed by turtle wax or meguirs (little results) thank you!

Was very excited to receive this product as my headlights were very bad. I have a 2007 Chevy Malibu and with the Florida Weather my headlights became very yellow, hazy and scratched. The product did remove all the yellow and haziness. It smoothed out the scratches but didn't remove them. They are a lot cleaner but its not like brand new. Maybe if I didn't wait so long to take care of them they would of came out a lot better. Overall very satisfied.
Works as Advertised

Just finished my wife's car (2007 Chevy Aveo) today and was very pleased with the results. The only way to do better would be to order new lenses and I am sure that would cost a lot more money than this kit. The instructions came in a very nice colored pamphlet, clear and concise. Took me 30 minutes for my first time and that is with doing two coats of all the products. I have not tried the Wolfgang kit. I went with Diamondite only because they specialize in plastic/glass restoration/protection.

I used this product on a 9 year old car that stays outside and was quite happy with the results.

I've used Diamondite headlight lens system 3 times on 3 different vehicles. It removes all the yellow/dingy patches off the lenses easily, and the lenses look great initially. but the reason I didn't rate this product higher is because the lenses start to develop the same patches in about 4-6 months. I thought it should last at least a little longer.

Pretty badly clouded headlights. Followed the instructions exactly and everything is 20/20 clear! Great product!
Does Not Work
June 9, 2010
The only thing this product did was polish the clear. It did NOTHING to remove the clouds on the lenses, and this was following all the instructions on the DVD. I would NOT recommend this product. I am very disappointed after spending the $59.99.

Works just as advertised. I was amazed as to the results. My headlights have 164,000 miles on them - mainly interstate - and were in bad shape until I used this product. Now they look almost as good as they did when the car was new.
cler plastic lenses cleaner

works very well as a 'tune up' for lenses not heavily clouded!

I've used this kit to restore 6, 10, and 14 year old headlights to like-new condition. Takes less than an hour and the results are simply amazing. Try it before you buy new headlights. You won't be disappointed.
It actually works ! (really)

I bought this product being somewhat skeptical about the results. But faced with cloudy lights I had no choice. The first light I had to do a couple of times to get used to the buffing wheel. The second light went much faster. I was done in about 30 minutes. They're not perfect but a significant improvement in both appearance and visibility.

Worked much better than the Wolfgang Kit, but came with a little less amounts of the products.
