Drill Operated Easy Buff Wool Pad
It’s the wool that makes the tool. Meguiar’s Easy Buff Wool Pad technology gives you superior cutting to quickly remove oxidation and defects from your clear plastic headlights. You will also find this pad is much easier to control than a traditional foam pad, which comes with conventional headlight restoration kits. It’s more effective at removing defects. To clean the pad, carefully, use a cleaning spur or microfiber towel on the face of the pad, while the pad is still attached to the drill and running at a slow speed.
Once You Cleared It, Protect It
It's recommended that you coat your headlights with Meguiar’s Headlight Protectant (sold separately) to act as a barrier between the plastic and harmful UV rays, prolonging the clarity and brilliance of new or freshly restored headlights. With the regular use of Meguiar's Headlight Protectant, oxidation and discoloration can be prevented. It helps maintain headlight clarity for new and recently restored headlights and provides durable protection from harmful and damaging UV rays.

The headlights on my car had started to show the telltale opaqueness characteristic of sun damage and oxidation. I started with the more involved system by 3M - the process is to use a series of disks to first sand off the opaque layer and then imperfections in the surface left by the first disk to finer and finer scratches until you get to a frosted appearance and then polish the headlight cover with polishing compound until you get a clear surface. The Meguiar's product requires less steps in that you start with a rubbing compound and then after achieving the frosted appearance spray with a clear protective coating.
- the 3M product left a clear un-yellowed headlight cover
- the Meguiar's product left a clear un-yellowed headlight cover
surprise, essentially they were in my opinion equally effective at restoring the headlights
Ease of use / Effort
- the 3M product took roughly 60-90 minutes to strip and buff a single headlight, note that this was done using a cordless drill (you may need an appropriate chuck as the kit attachment is smooth and round where my drill required a hex shank) making several passes and wiping down to assess progress before advancing to the next disk [ note that the instructions caution you to mask around the headlights to prevent damage to the paint, I would suggest multiple layers in the areas where the paint is most likely to get damaged, varying by car - I suggest this because I cut right through a single layer of tape in one area and scratched the paint ]
- the Meguiar's product took roughly 15-20 minutes, this was through intense side to side rubbing of the headlight with the applicator pad, adding more buffing compound as the surface became dry and wiping down to assess progress before the final spray on step [ note that you need to mask here as well, but now to protect against overspray from the protecting coat, also, be careful in your spray technique as it is possible to end up with drips due to too much spray application ]
Overall, as you can see from the attached before and after the both systems worked well, the difference being mostly in the length of time required to achieve the effect. Overall, I like the Maguiar's product better due to the reduced time (though the manual effort was more intense). P-)
I paid the full retail price from a big box mega "Mart" store. I know some people get these products for free in exchange for writing a review. I am not one of those people.
In the past I've used the highly-rated 3M Trizact headlight sanding kit and it works well but it requires a lot of time, it's a bit messy and the results fade over time.
The Meguiar's kit was just a scrubbing sponge reminiscent of those green nylon dish sponges and a cleaning and sealing product. I didn't even mask the light assembly. Within 10 minutes my headlights went from foggy off white to near-perfectly clear. I am not sure how many headlight applications they promise in the package but I don't think I used even a quarter of the product for both headlights. The pads seem washable to be reused, and the results are promised for a year.
I have attached photos of my results below. The photos are not retouched. I have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata and am very happy with the results.
This is long, but you’ll be glad you read this before using the kit.
First off, I really am pleased with being able to transform my totally clouded, pitted, 10-year-old headlamps into looking nearly brand new. But, to do so, I needed to read a few of the reviews of this product and do a few extra things to make it work:
1. If your headlamps are cloudy or pitted at all, you’re going to need additional wet/dry sandpaper (which I got after reading other reviews). I ended up getting two packages of 3M wet/dry sandpaper that covered the range from 220 grit all the way up to 2500 grit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JPGTNI?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_20 and http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CQ49X6?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_16
2. Have two spray bottles handy, one with soapy water and one with plain water, and use them liberally while using the sandpaper.
3. Make sure to tape well (masking tape; NOT duct tape) to protect the paint on your hood.
4. Plan to spend some time and elbow grease. If your headlamps are as cloudy/pitted as mine were, plan 30-40 minutes per headlight if you want to get them looking new.
5. Make sure you start with just coarse enough grit to get through the initial deteriorated surface. I was sure that 400 grit was more than coarse enough, but 10 minutes on one headlight still hadn’t sanded through the deteriorated plastic layer. After going through all the grades I had (400, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000), I ended up starting over with the 220 and working my way up again, from there. I inspected carefully to make sure the 220 did its job before moving up to 400. Don’t be intimidated by the scratch marks from whatever you choose for your coarsest grade that is appropriate to your headlamps. These scratches will go away through the process – you need to make sure to get through the initial layer of deterioration.
6. Make sure you change directions each time you increase the fineness of the sandpaper, as you go up through the grades. Side-to-side at one grade and up-and-down for the next grade. I spent 5 minutes each with the 220, 400, 800, and 1000 grades, and 3 minutes each with the 1500, 2000, 2500, and 3000 (last being the pad provided). If I only used the 1000 and 3000 pads that came with the kit, I *never* would have gotten anywhere close to what I was able to do. I may have used more grades of sandpaper than strictly required, but I hadn’t reconditioned the headlamps in 10 years of owning the car, and I wanted great results, so I put in some extra work. It paid off.
7. Even if you use 8 grades of sandpaper, like I did (and I really did need those coarser grades), when you finish with the sandpaper steps, the headlamps will have a dull, satin finish, but hopefully smooth. The miracle occurs when you use the Maguire’s buffing compound with a corded electric drill. I replaced the masking tape, since the water I’d used liberally when sanding had soaked the original tape. After re-taping, I started buffing according to the directions, and the headlamps turned crystal clear. Amazing! I took my time, applied it 2-3 times with the buffer, and then did one round by hand, per the directions. They literally looked as good as the brand new headlamps that my wife got on her car a couple of weeks ago. We are both amazed and very pleased. Apply the protective coating to finish.
Yes, it can take a while, depending on the condition of your headlamps. But, if you’re patient, the results will be worth it, and saves several hundred $ in buying new lamps. I gave 4 stars because I had to buy the extra sandpaper and go through multiple steps to get the results I wanted with my older headlamps. And, thanks to the other reviewers for the tips that made this work so well for me!
