I have a very old SUV and the plastic headlight lenses are foggy. Two years ago, I treated them with a headlight restoring product that abraded the fogged plastic, made a newer surface, the I sealed it with the enclosed UV protectant. The tried to avoid parking SUV towards sunny horizon. Doing that was not fun, I don’t have much hand strength, so DH helped. I think there was about 70% improvement.
The lenses are foggy again, DH seems to have too much to do, and keeps promising to get around to it. I’ve been thinking that there are not enough lifetimes for us to do all the work ourselves.
I have a car/boat “buffer” — made for waxing & buffing. Think or know if I can use that 6” electric buffer gizmo instead of my puny muscle power to polish/abrade the headlamp lense? DH can tend towards the negative, and said “no” without even seeing the buffer or really hearing me. Maybe, he’s correct.
Or, can one buy and install just new plastic headlight lense component?
Or, should I buy completely new headlamps Toyota and we install replace ourselves.
Or, get mechanic or autobody shop to polish out the SUV headlamp fog, then SEAL with whatever?
Or, only drive in bright sunlight.
I hope someone of you has had to deal with this. Ideally, a new or newer vehicle. Another thing DH is going to get around to thinking about.
Thank for any help from experience..
