No matter how much you keep up with your car's paint and overall appearance, you are almost guaranteed to start having cloudiness and yellow build up occur on your headlights. This happens to headlights, slowly over time, as they are exposed to heat, rain, road residue and just by being out in the elements. Replacing your headlights will fix this problem, but headlights tend to be very expensive. Many people, instead of replacing headlights, are choosing to restore headlight lens. Meguiar's G1900K Headlight and Clear Plastic Restoration Kit is a kit that does just that.

One of the main selling points of the Meguiar's headlight restoration kits is that they will not damage the paint around your headlights. Because the Meguiar's system to restore headlight lens uses a buffing pad, rather than an abrasive pad, it will not scratch your vehicle's paint. The kit includes PlastX polish, a buffing pad, and a microfiber towel. Meguiar's headlamp restoration kit also promises to work on more than just restoring headlights, it also states that it will remove scratches, oxidation and yellowing from plastic on all parts of a vehicle, including brake lights and convertible windows.
The advantage of using this headlamp restoration kit is that you don't have to spend forever manually trying to remove headlight residue, although you must have a drill to use the product. By and large, product reviews were positive, but several people commented that headlight restoration was only temporary, some people were seeing cloudiness again within a matter of months. Another thing that people did not like is that the buffing pad is apparently rather flimsy. Overall, most people saw positive results, there were a handful of people who saw no change, but sometimes buildup occurs on the inside of headlights, and those cannot be restored. Overall the product delivers, and does what it says.
