I was surprised with how well it worked. It may take some elbow grease but it works. Follow the instructions and you can't go wrong, I skipped the first application of the rubbing compound because of the severity of oxidation on the lenses, the compound would not have made much of a difference. Make sure you USE THE GLOVES when applying the sealer, it is almost like paint and will also need time to dry. It is a little messy from the buffing pads. It's not perfect but it gets the job done surprisingly well. The entire process only took less than an hour.

Read the directions! They say just use the pads if the cream doesnt get all the yellow junk off. The cream helped but it didnt get it all. It says to use the pads next with another cleaner.I used the #1, #2, #3 and #4 pads on one light and it is now a little scratched up looking. I just used the #3 and #4 on the other light and it looks fine.For [$]I think the Turtlewax headlight kit works fine just DO NOT use the #1 and #2 pads, but the #3 and #4 are ok.Another plus is you do not have to use a drill for the pads, just a little elbo-grease!!!

        Not difficult to use. Results are good initially but the lens becomes cloudy within a few months.

          The efficacy of this restoration kit was a pleasant surprise. It worked wonderfully, and it was the cheapest kit at the store. The whole process took about 15 minutes per headlight, and by the end, the lights were glistening like new. I also have a decent amount of both lubricants left for future use. Definitely recommended.

                  Just bought a 97 Nissan Altima and the oxidation was pretty bad (typical of what you would normally see). I only had to use the compound (never had to use the pads/lubricant). It took all of 5 minutes and the lens were like new.

                  I wish they had more than just a single sealant wipe. The compound/cream will last at least 6 or 7 applications. Which means the value is through the roof.

                      Used this about a month ago on my wife's Toyota Prius they were pretty yellowed only had to use the compound, cleaner, and sealer. It cleared them up right away and no signs of coming back at this point.

                          This is a great kit to use. It works! You don't need a drill. Everything is done by hand, and pretty easy. My headlights were not terrible, but they looked pretty dingy, foggy and yellow. This kit really made them look a lot better! I needed to use the sanding pads on mine, I used 1,2,3, and 4. Pretty much followed the directions exactly. Another reviewer stated to skip pads 1 and 2, but in my case there was no way only 3 and 4 would have sufficed. My headlights needed all 4. I highly recommend turning the headlights on when sanding the headlights, as it makes it a lot easier to see the defects.
                          It did not remove everything and I am sure that NO kit would. If I wanted perfect I would buy new headlights. This got them very good though. No kit will remove pitting in the headlights. I did the headlights and quickly did the fogs and I am pretty happy with how they turned out.
                          I lost the before pics but have the after!

                              I used this product to clean my faded headlights so that my vehicle would pass the state safety inspection. It does take a little elbow grease and some hard scrubbing but the results are great. I justed followed the instructions word for word and the Headlights came out nice and clear. I got the vehicle reinspected and it passed no problem! There is even enough in the polisher in the bottle to use it a second time but the sealer is a one time use packet.

                              • Q:

                                I purchased the Turtle Wax Headlight Lens Restorer Kist last year and it worked great. However, after more time in the sun and more winter grime last year, the scratches are back and I want to try cleaning it again with fresh Restoration Pads. Can I get replacements for the 3 pads that come in the kit, especially the Level 1 Green pads. Was wondering if you or Turtle Wax sold replacements? The rest of the components have plenty of fluids left.

                                Also, can you get any more Lens Sealing Wipes?

                                Seems like they would be light and easy to ship in the mail, rather than purchasing a whole new $20 kit.

                                Any ideas?

                                Thanks

                                On step 7 it says "Coating will dry and cure within 24 hours." Does this mean I shouldn't use it on my car if it's gonna rain? If i use it and then it rains will it ruin it?

                                  Yes, it is recommended to cure it for 24 hrs after application of the Turtlewax Headlight Lens Restorer Kit (Part No. T240KT). Exposure to rain in this time frame might affect the restorer's performance.
