Yellow Headlights Made Better

Let's face it, yellowed headlights can really age a car. In this video, we removed the yellow oxidation from the headlights with some fine bodyshop safe rubbing compound to remove the yellow oxidation from the headlights. This car's headlights were pretty bad, so we started with 1500 wet sandpaper and then moved into hand polishing out the sand scratches along with the yellow. This will take a lot of hard work, a buffer, or high-speed polisher.

"Just wanting to let you know that there is a new use for your wonderful rubbing compound: repairing UV damage to headlights! Just clean headlights first with window cleaner, apply rubbing compound with a dry cloth, then remove with another dry cloth. Apply UV protectant on the final layer. You will be amazed at how much easier (and cheaper) this system is. And it lasts!"
