Wow, simple tip that could save me alot of time and money and energy. I use 3 step cutting compound and wax with very similar results...I would much rather lug around a tube of tooth paste and a scrub brush that a power buffer.
That floss really was a good one! I was like woah! Really? Let's see. I was doing the same while watching the video and paused it. Found the dental floss after much effort and after resuming the video; yeah I got it. Got a hammer in my hand and '''BANGGG'''. NOW IT LOOKS CLEAR. WONT TURN YELLOW ANYMORE!
Take wet and dry sand paper, 1500 grit. Sand down.
Follow with 3000 grit.
Apply cutting compond. Polish by hand or better with an orbital buffer/polisher/ sander
Apply car body wax and buff.
The headlights become exactly like brand new!
Thank me after you've done it.
Toothpaste will work for 1-6 days after that will damage your lens even more , trust me my brother did it because of YouTube and I have to buy the 3M headlight restoration kit and sand it down hard to it and damage it still there because of the toothpaste he used to clean the lens , the headlight now clean and shine but if I look carefully I still can see the deep damage spot that the toothpaste have eating up the lens mix with the sun .
I must be doing something wrong, I have gotten to the point where sanding the headlight wet with finer grains, the headlight becomes foggy but using toothpaste several times has not cleared it up. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
I tried this on a flashlight, long before I ever saw this video. It was still a bit cloudy, but I suppose that's what the wax is for. I've also used plastic polish on headlights, which works much better than the toothpaste on the flashlight. It doesn't require the wax to look good, though I suppose wax might help the results last longer. On my Saturn SL1 (RIP) I checked the brightness before and after with a light meter, and got a 30 percent increase in the middle of the pattern. I suspect that if I'd measured the brightness where the light wasn't supposed to go, it would have been reduced.
The plastic polish was from the auto parts store, and was relatively inexpensive. I seem to recall trying some sort of buffing compound, also with good results. And I think it makes tail lights, brake lights etc. look better and, I suspect, work better.
Could someone please explain why there are so many products, and tips, out there to restore your headlights if they are faded, or milky. You can buy aftermarket headlights for only $25 for the headlight he showed in this video, and that is even with free shipping. Also no matter what you use to get the yellow, or milky color out of the lenses they will do this again very quick, it has more to do with plastic once it has oxidized, it is like rust once rust has started on a car the only way to get rid of it is to cut the part off, or sand blast until it is gone, you could put WD-40 on it, but as you know this is only a temp solution with rust, same as oxidized headlights. Seriously people if you can not afford to replace your headlights with a pair of aftermarket headlights, YOU SHOULD NOT BE DRIVING PERIOD!!
wow...a friend told me about a video (this video) that cleaned the headlights with toothpaste. I googled, found your video right away, watched it...then immediately tried it. AMAZING!!! Thank you so much!!!!!
