Hey Chris. Love your videos, they are simply awesome and entertaining as heck! I tried the toothpaste + baking soda method and it actually scratched up the headlight because I guess the baking soda was too harsh for the plastic (or i just scrubbed too hard)? If you could let me know what I may have done wrong that would be great, thanks man! (Will probably go onto just sanding and re clear-coating it now).
I did this method without wax. I live in rural areas where I sometimes drive on dirt roads and it can be dusty. This method kept my headlights clear for about 2 1/2 months during a hot muggy summer this year. If you are in need of some clear headlights for a very short temporary time (selling vehicle, road trip) I would recommend this method, but I wouldn't recommend this as a lasting fix. I am going to try the sanding and clear coat method with some more products from your other video, Chris.
THanks for this one man! Given the fact that I don't have a lot of money to 'throw' away for cleaning services, plus I enjoy cleaning my car and making it in a good shape by myself, this one's gonna definitely help! I just subscribed to your channel, and I am looking forward to yet another cool car hacks from you, that'll help guys like me, keep the ride in a great shape, without having to waste too much cash for it!
Greetings from Macedonia!
This worked better than any other toothpaste tutorial I've tried! Possibly because I wasn't rubbing it in enough or using a gritty toothpaste. This got most of the haze out, but once it dried it became foggy again. I'll try another coat or two tomorrow. Thanks ChrisFix!
I tried this method yesterday. Same toothpaste as well.
The results were astounding, though it didn't restore to top condition, it went from dull lights to really bright. Instead of using my bare hands I used nitrite gloves to keep the wax off my hands and causing possible damage.
Now my regular headlights look like high beams and my high beams look like I bought a lightbar for my 96 Avalon. :-) Many thanks. :-)
