Holts Head­light Restora­tion Kit from £21

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.
