    After sanding, then rubbing the polish in, use your 1800-2200-RPM electric drill to buff off years of haze. Your headlights will look showroom-new, and the light output will increase, so you'll get a better nighttime view of the road up ahead.

    The little buffing wheel came apart pretty easily but overall it did what it was advertised to do. I did my Mom's headlight covers and they were 100% better than they were before i started. You might get 4 headlights of work form the buffing wheel, but then it will be done. You might get 6 headlights out of the tube of polish and you can use the polish on other things. All things considered it worked.

    I used this kit on out 1998 F150 pickup, which as you know, has at each front corner ENORMOUS combination headlight-turn signal--parking lights!

    Well the first one went as planned except I would recommend using a little less than the online video here shows because on the second light assy. I started to run a little short of the paste and the buffing wheel was very clogged and pasty.

    Nothing to loose sleep over, I made it work.

    The light assy. is definatly MUCH cleaner and as soon as I get the chance to test them out I am sure they will be just fine...I HOPE!!!

    The only complaint I have is...I feel this kit should be supplied with TWO of the wheels just to make the process easier without having to worry about cleaning the pad…

    Otherwise...well worth the $11.99 SALE price!!!

    While my headlights weren't as bad as some I've seen on cars, the brightness of the lights was being effected by the damaged lenses. After buffing them, using the Autosol and buffing wheel in this kit, they looked like new. This product worked very well for me.

    Used this on my daughter's 1996 Ford Taurus. I did the progressive grit wet sanding first. Lenses looked showroom new when I was done.

    I PURCHASED A 98 CHEVY 1TON DUALLY. I NOTICED WHEN I DROVE AT NIGHT, THE LIGHTS WHERE NOT BRIGHT. I WENT ON LINE TO PRICE NEW REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. THEN I RECEIVED E-MAIL FROM EASTWOOD. THE KIT WAS ON SALE . I FIGURED THIS WAS CHEAPER THAN PURCHASING ALL NEW HEAD AND TAIL LIGHTS.
    SO I ORDERED IT, MY WIFE ACTUALLY DID THE USED THE KIT. IT WORKED GREAT. SAVED A LOT OF MONEY ON NEW LIGHTS.
    Works, but you may need to wet-sand headlights first (Posted on 1/25/10)

    I bought this kit to use on my wife's car. It made a difference with no other prep, but the headlight plastic was still crazed. I ended up using wet/dry sandpaper (for autobody work) on a sanding block to really get the surface smooth. In my case, I had to wet-sand the lights starting with 400 grit, then 600, then 800, then 1000, then 1500, then finally 2000 grit paper.

    (You might not need to go as coarse as I did. To determine the proper grit, I actually started in reverse, working from the finest grit down to the coarsest grit necessary to remove the crazed plastic. 400 grit is where I stopped, as the headlights were uniform in their appearance after sanding with 400 grit. Once at this point, I then worked back up the grits to the 2000-grit paper.)

    At this point the headlight was smooth and relatively clear, with just a slightly cloudy appearance.

    Once I'd wet-sanded all the way up to 2000 grit, the Autosol polish with the bonnet provided in the kit then worked great and got the headlights perfectly clear. It's important to use water with the paper to keep it from loading up. It's also important to not skip any grits as you work from coarsest to finest paper; otherwise you'll have scratches visible when you get done, and will have to start over to get rid of them.
