Sam's Service Review:

Hired Sam for a $50 HeadLight Restoration Service (+1 Pricing). Met up at Sam's house at 11:30AM. Sam got his tools all lined up and ready to work. The job was done in about 2 hours. He didn't waste any time trying to figure things out, he knew exactly what he needed to do. (+1 Experience)

Before Pictures:

My headlights were not too bad to begin with, just some rock chips and a little fading due to sunlight. It is a 6 year old car so I thought it was time to get some work done to the headlights.

The Process:

Sam sanded the lights with sand paper. Taking out the rock chips and fades. It was smooth by touch. (+1 Skills) :thumbsup:

Sam then polished the headlights with a few different professional products. The lights ended up getting a better shine than factory. (+1 Skills)

Check that out. Shine like a mirror. See my t-shirt logo?

Outta curiosity's, why did you block out the date stamp?

This would be a better thread with actual products listed that he used.
products used
Novus 1,2, and 3
Poorboys SSR 2.5 and 1
I'm going to put my 2 cents in this. I've tried headlight restoration before and I found that the headlight plastic tends to not do as well with Novus products as with the Meguiars Plastic X that could be bought at any auto store. The Novus is too abrasive and the hazy will come back in a couple of days. Meguiars however tend to keep its restored look longer than Novus and does not scar the lense as much.
ic ic novus works great for me and the hazing doesnt comeback for me.
Novus 3 via Orange sp. 6
Poorboys 2.5 via Orange sp. 6
Novus 2 via black sp. 5
Poorboys 1 via black sp. 5
