Restoring Old Headlights

Used: BlueMagic Headlight Restorer.
No Sandpaper needed.
I only used a rough wash cloth.
I only had to put a dime size of BlueMagic on the cloth and rubbed it on the headlight lens for a couple of minutes. I then Washed it off. I applied it one more time only using about a dime size and washed it off again. Now looks like a new headlight.
The pictures dont give the product justice!

Looks nice.... But to be fair those wasn't bad enough to need sand paper either!!! I used the same stuff on my bonneville and wow.. it made it 200x's worst and showed all of the areas that needed to be sanded. But after a light 2000/3000 grit sanding and more blue stuff it looked great...

I just used some of that Blue Magic on the '03 ES I just picked up. I was impressed to say the least. I thought I was going to have to pull out the 3M headlight restorer and there is no need to now!

I fixed mine with Crest Whitening

I saw the videos on Youtube and thought it was a hoax for sure. But then I bought some of the Crest whitening toothpaste, and used is on each headlight and after rinsing off the lights, I was amazed they were clear. I understand this is only temporary and will need to be done again, but I am still shocked it worked.

I used one of those fancy kits, had to re-do it, and then put regular wax on it... makes it last longer, and then use Ultimate compound whenever things start to fog again.
