How To Restore Headlights - Headlight Restoration From Home

How To Restore Headlights - Headlight Restoration Tips here: In this post we will show you the simple process of wet sanding and clear coating your headlights with 2k clear coat. For those of you who don't know what 2k clear is, basically you have 2 kinds of clear. The first one is 1k. You see then on the shelves of automotive stores like AutoZone, Checkers, O'Reilly and PepBoys. You know... Brands like Krylon and Rustoleum. They have no hardeners in them and are weak in durability plus they are cheap. You can use them, but you won't get a long lasting finish if that's what you're looking for. If you want to restore headlights by clear coating them, then I recommend to use a 2k clear coat like I do in the video on the top of this post. They can last longer and won't fade out every year to 18 months. This method has been tested and used by many people. There are Pros and Cons, and here are the Pros first. Easy and affordable to clear coat your headlights Longer lasting than buffing out headlights Beautiful high finish gloss after clearing Very durable when comparing to a 1k clear coat The Cons Takes 30 min longer because of masking and painting You need to buy some automotive clear coat and a spray bottle May peel in 3-5 years if in consistant sunlight. (you can always sand and re clear though) So, yes! this is easy as heck to do and you can make your headlights look like new again. You can also start a mini business out of it, like I said one of our VIP members Gary did. Here's a finished picture below of a completed headlight that we did on a Honda CRV.
