There are many products that are being sold in the market that offer to restore plastic lenses but it is only the 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System which offers to clean up lenses no matter what stage of oxidation, scratching that it is in. 3M claims that their headlamp restoration system can restore it to almost brand new status. Although the kit is used by many professionals it is simple enough that even ordinary guys can use it for a professional level piece of work on their car. The 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System Kit contains everything that you need except an air compressor to power up the sander and other tools.
Here are some of the things that you get with the kit:
- Orbital Sander
- One 3M polisher with a Pistol Grip
- 3M Lens System Tool Bag
- 2 Adapters
- Perfect-It rubbing Compound
- Perfect-It Machine Polish
- Sandig Disc Pad
- Hookit Interface Pads
- Additional Discs and Pads
Again for all the pads to work you need an air compressor but aside from that everything that is needed for the system to work is included in the kit. You might have observed that there are a great number of abrasives included in the kit which is used for the detailing part.
Checking out most of the customer reviews regarding this kit from 3M the general verdict is that it delivers what it promises. It can clean any headlight under any condition. You can hardly find any negative comment or review about this product, which shows how effective it really is.
The only problem is its price is a little steep for your personal use. Good thing that there is a smaller version of the kit which can be used for restoring two headlight lenses which should be enough for your vehicle and you can get that kit for about $20. If you are aiming to perform a lot of professional level work then you should get the kit version.
The 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System can be used for performing lens restoration for up to 15 pairs of headlights. For a professional auto detailer that is a lot of work already. So this is the best of the headlight restoration kits out there and could really be worth it if you are planning on using it for a living. Just remember to keep it in a proper storage place because it might deteriorate over time if it is not used often enough.
I guess you can see now why professionals prefer to use this product from 3M. It can really deliver great looking results.
