Regardless of where you live, your car's headlights are subjected to a variety of contaminants that will damage them. They can oxidize, turn yellow and cloudy.

Not only is this an unsightly problem, but the reduced light output is a serious safety concern.

Purchasing a high quality restoration kit can be well worth your time and money, especially when you consider that one lens may cost hundreds of dollars.

After masking off the paint surfaces surrounding your headlight lens, attach the PowerBall 4Lights® to any variable speed drill. Now tighten the drill chuck and set the speed to high.

Apply a nickel-sized amount of product to the center of the PowerBall 4Lights®.

Resting the crown of the ball on the lens, start the drill motor slowly to avoid slinging the product, and evenly distribute the product across the surface. Add small amounts of polish as needed.

Work in small areas using a slow back and forth motion. Overlap the motions until the entire lens is clean and clear.

For quicker polishing, angle the ball slightly for a few passes before going over it again with the crown.

Complete the process by buffing clean with a soft microfiber or terry cloth towel.

The lens should be crystal clear.

Monthly applications of the polish by hand, or with the PowerBall 4Lights®, will help maintain and protect your lenses.
