    My head light lenses are definitely not clear anymore. Has anyone had luck with the restoration kits or should I just buy new headlight assemblies off rock auto.

    The kits work fine. I’d go with the 3M one. The key ingredient is the UV blocker as the final step. The rest is just wet sanding different grits.

    I've used the 3m one on my old car. Worked well.

    I just use Meguire's Plast-x every few months when washing mine. Super easy. If yous are bad you may want to pull the trim housing off the first time. But after that you won't need to.

    I just used the Meguire's head light restore kit. And It worked very well.

    I used the Turtle Wax kit. Ten bucks at O'Reilly's. Worked great. Wish I had taken before and after pics.

    In a pinch you can use WD-40. It will hold up for a while but not as good as dedicated kits. Careful not to get the WD-40 on the paint.
