My Mustang's right head light is all oxidized, hazed up looking. Does anybody know any good products, or home appliances you can use that actually work?

There are kits to restore headlights but I always recommend new housings. ebay is cheap, I got replacements for 60$. Kits start at 15.

I also just bought new ones. But in the past I've sanded headlights with a 2000 grit, and then sprayed 2-3 coats of clear. Its just a little more work the way but gets amazing results.

I like using 3Ms kit for headlights with heavier oxidation

Re: Oxidation

after you get it cleared up wax it it to protect it from UV just like the paint and trim

Re: Oxidation

usually oxidation comes back faster the second go around and some headlights (99-04) have clear coats that can peal~
