Headlight Restoration using Clear Coat. This video will show you how to clean and restore your headlights so they will never turn yellow or hazy again! You have seen videos on restoring headlights with bug spray, toothpaste, baking soda, and the kits you buy in the store, but all of these methods are temporary and eventually the haze and oxidation will come back.
My method will first make the headlight clear by wet sanding and then put a UV coat on it to seal it in.

      After 3 coats of clear gloss... There is some haziness from paint I believe. What shall I do to get absolutely clear glass now?

      I followed these exact steps back in 2016 and used the exact same Rust-Oleum clear coat. It hasnt't even been 3 years and my headlights are now more yellow'd than before. Its not a huge deal as I can just quickly do it again and the headlights do look great immediately after this process. However, I would not say that this is permanent. I would say to maybe try and find a clear coat that is a little higher end than a $5 can of Rust-Oleum as it's non-yellowing properties are not very robust.

      Hello Chris... I want to do this on my car (You have taught me so much if not everything I know or I have done to my car , thanks for that bro). I was just ordering the products and I notice that now you recommend one that is different from the one you use in the video, could you tell me what is the difference in those two products?

      Best regards.

      It depends how long it dried before it rained. If you got an hour in, you might be ok. Odds are the humidity before the rain could be an issue tho.

      I agree with many of the comments below. 400, and 600 to rough. Start with 800, move up to 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000. Use a good cutting compound, degrease then clear coat. After 3 coats of clear 1500, 2000, 3000 sand again. Buff with cutting compound again. Done

      Hey great video, my headlights are already damn clear, I just want them as new looking as possible. They are starting to get a little bit of a haze again. Now, I'm reluctant to use a restorant product again, I don't want to scratch them. Any types of polishes you reccomend? Thanks.

      I'm getting moisture inside my headlight. One AutoZone guy said can't do anything about that, I remember a chemical that helps painter's dry rooms, Anhydrous calcium chloride. I was thinking about trying that.

      Dirt & sand from ordinary driving. are going to dull up the headlight. The fix is NOT permanent.

      I just bought all new headlight assemblies with included bulbs for my 01 Silverado for $100 at rockauto. You’re gonna spend a good $50 on these supplies and new bulbs and it won’t be as good as new. This is good if you’re selling the vehicle
