Holts Headlight Restoration Kit from £21
If you’re sick of your classic suffering from age-related yellow headlights, this kit is worth its weight in gold.
Aftermarket vehicle equipment manufacturer Holts has developed a headlight restoration kit that includes everything you’ll need to return your headlights to their showroom shine and keep you safer while driving.
The kit includes abrasive discs and polish which remove deep scratches and surface oxidation and a sealer which buffs off to leave a clear protective finish on your headlights.
The results can’t be argued with (we’ve used it on a Renault Clio) but you need to factor in about 30-45 minutes per headlight to do them properly. The abrasive discs attach to a power tool, and then it’s up to you.
If you’re not familiar with buffing, or power tools, have a few test goes on something else. Instructions are helpful, if not terribly thorough. And when you’re told to mask off the headlight section – please pay attention. It’s easy to scuff your paint.
