Pittmans Deoxidizer

Anybody use this stuff on their headlights? Mine are stock 2000's and are badly oxidized and i want to use something (probably this Pittmans stuff) to make them look nice until i get something different.

Thanks!

Never heard of it... I used plasticX and wet sanded mine. It's easy to do.

Wet sand with 1500 then 2000cr abrasive paper, then a cutting compound, then Meguires PlastX. Note: This is the only meguires product I reccommend, and only because I haven't found similar product made by another manufacturer.

Yes I use Pittman deoxidizer, it works just like the video.
If you just want to remove the oxidation from your headlights and make them clear again fast, It's the safest bet.
You could use the sanding method but abrasive sanding is going remove much more than oxidation.
Unless you are planning to resurface your headlights, most people try to avoid the sandpaper approach unless they are professionals or don't have a clue as to what they are getting into.

Try toothpaste first! Make sure it is not a gel toothpaste.

Re: Pittmans Deoxidizer

I have heard of both plastix and sanding.
Who hasn't?
They are old out dated methods, that most of us who have experience with acrylics have abandoned.
That is because neither is UV layer safe, and both are designed to resurface your headlights.
That's O.K. if that is your intention but most people juat want to clear up the clouding caused by oxidation

They don't have the skill or desire to go through the process of resurfacing
It's both faster and safer to use a deoxidizer to remove acrylic oxidation.
That way you won't damage your UV layer or cloud up your lens surface with scratches.

Sure you can polish away the oxidation with plastix or sand it away with sandpaper, but due to the damage caused by these methods.
They are not the optimum method of headlight cleaning.
