I myself have used the meguires restore kit with the buffing wheel that goes on a drill and had great results, the headlights looked like new afterwards and the kit I used I was able to do 3 vehicles with.


the fact that I had more then 1 vehicle with yellowed lights was enough to justify to try the kit versus buying new headlight assemblies for 3 vehicles.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

Blue Magic headlight plastic polish on a 3in wool polishing wheel and my power drill hasn't failed me yet! Finish with their sealant and reapply a couple times per year and they'll last quite a while.

Apex Detail on YouTube just did a video about a Cerakote Ceramic Headlight Restoration Kit.

Looks pretty easy to me!

All these high dollar kits and the best renew is a little bit of turtlewax chrome polish on a cheap buffing wheel.
No screwing around it works almost immediately and on my babes scion it lasts about 9-10 months
