Plastic headlamp lens restoration.....

Recommended Posts


I have recently used a 3M Headlight Restoration System kit on my 2006 Mazda 6MPS.

The kit comes with 500g/800g/3000g sanding discs, a sponge pad and polishing compound, a hook pad for mounting in a drill and even some nice heavy masking tape.

Takes a bit of time but worked well. You will probably find yourself doing both lenses, but may not have to start with the 500g if the better one is not so aged.

I bought a cheap polishing mop off ebay for a few quid, fits in a drill.

Then used polishing compound, bit coarser than T cut, to polish teh lenses. Works well enough, maybe finish with a finer polish after. 

Works well enough, but indeed, if the lenses are really bad some very fine wet/dry paper would speed things up.

Sorry I should have replied sooner, much sooner.

Thanks for the advice.

I have a confession to make, I haven't done anything about this.
The car needed a small  bit of work for the MOT and I didn't get around to doing anything about the headlamp lenses.
