5 Minute Headlamp Restorer

So akaprelude98sh introduced me to the wonders of the 5 minute headlamp restorer cause my driver side headlight was pretty messed up. So went to napa and figured for 10 bucks why not try it...


soo it was incredibly easy to do, and I'll let the pics do all the talking...

AFTER:

:)

I might go over again see if i can get it clearer but I'm completely satisfied with my 10$!

Re: 5 Minute Headlamp Restorer

looks pretty good. My lights are messed up too, not as bad as yours were though. I think I'll give it a try.

I'm willing to be this here is all they use.

Re: 5 Minute Headlamp Restorer

i can vouch for this product it works real well. the only problem that i have with it is that you have to use atleast 3 pads per headlight to make it look crystal clear and it's not exactly 5 min. but for a $10 you can't really complain at all. also if you spend a little more on plasticX by Muguiar's after you use this product you're headlight will end up looking new. ill post some pictures up soon to show the after. 5 minute Headlight Cleaner + Plastic X by Muguiar's= brand new looking headlights. lol
