Cleaning headlights with wd40, toothpaste, restoration kits, clear coat, and other methods have been used. In this video, I am going to test the #toothpaste and WD40 to see which works better and lasts longer. I made the video because I have restored headlights in other videos and get so many questions about them, so I decided to make this video to help answer these issues for you.
I mentioned in the video the permanent fix for headlight restoration using a 2K clear coat. There are a few steps you need to do to prep the plastic lenses so check out this video to learn more.
HEADLIGHT RESTORATION USING 2K CLEAR COAT
Some methods work better than others, but the important thing is to do something to improve your night vision. Hazy or foggy headlights are not only an eyesore making the appearance of your car look bad, but also cuts your night visibility a lot, which could result in an unnecessary accident. For example, not seeing a deer that jump out in front of you in time. So whether you use a method that requires you to restore the headlight often or one of the long-term fixes, get out there and do something.
