Has anyone ever tried to polish the headlights on their truck, such as on my '95 Suburban? What kits have you used? How well did it work? Thanks,Scott

The kits you get from autozone, kragen etc only work for a little while. I have used them on the wifes car. I just bought a kit of the web that is supposed to permanantly seal the light and seems to be working well at this point, only like 30 bucks. only been about six months though. I dont remember the name but can look later. the kit comes with enough stuff to do quite a few headlights, probably 5+ sets of lights.David

I used Mcguires Headlight restore kit on my 97 Suburban, 99 Tacoma, and daughters 03 Kia last year, the Tacoma and Kia came out real well and look good to this day, the headlights on the Tacoma actually look clearer than when it was new, the Suburban was ok, the turn signals came out clear but the headlights still have a little haze to them.

I took a different approach to fixing my cloudy lights.

I've polished in the past with marginal results and then picked up new lights off of E-Bay. Not that expensive.1998 K-2500 Suburban

I had an old $300 Plymouth Sundance (beater) that had foggy headlights. Being naturally cheap with that car, I decided to try simply using wet steel wool -- fine grade -- which worked beautifully. You just have to be careful to keep the water flowing. If you don't care what it looks like, an SOS pad will do, the soap may even have some benefit.
Once I was done with that, I just used masked the front end off, took some clear Walmart spray paint and sprayed that clear on the lenses. It lasted until I sold the car, about 2 years.

We used some 1500 or 2000 grit sand paper and then polished them up with plastic polish. Worked perfectly. (this was on a Honda Accord, but it should work identically).
