A few months ago, we realized that our night vision was greatly reduced because of headlight clouding. So of we went to a local shop to pick up a Mothers Power Plastic 4 Lights Kit to see if a simple $20 would work instead of a $100 or higher professional job. The kit includes:
Power Ball (polishing attachment for a power drill)
Severe Damage Restoration Pads (for severe cases of pits, scratches, and stains).
Instructions: After attaching the power ball to your speed drill, apply a small bit of the polish to the attachment. Place on headlight and start at slow speeds. Polish until entire lens is clean. Buff with the microfiber cloth.
Results: As you can see below, the results aren’t nearly as advanced as the packaging promises, but there is a slight improvement in headlight clarity. Especially on the left turn signal cover, the only light that required the severe restoration part of the kit.
Bottom Line: Worth the cost if you need light repairs. If you need advanced cleaning, have a professional buff out the plastic for you.
