    See the night in a new light.


    Man jogging at night with traffic.

    • You know your headlights are on, but they don’t shine as bright as they used to. Sun, age, and weather can cause your plastic lenses to become yellow, cloudy, and oxidized over time blocking those guiding lights.

      The good news? Your fresh-from-the-dealership lights aren’t gone forever. You can easily erase the damage and bring back clear lenses with 3M™ Headlight Lens Restoration solutions. New headlights can cost hundreds of dollars. Restore, don’t replace your lenses yourself in less than 30 minutes.

      The steps are simple: Sand. Refine. Polish…
      First, sand the surface to remove the dull, oxidized layer. Next, refine with our secret ingredient, 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive technology. The tiny, microreplicated structures that make up Trizact are specifically designed to self-sharpen as you refine. This ensures a smoother, more even finish. Finally, polish with 3M™ Rubbing Compound to bring out the shine. With these simple steps, you can bring back clarity to your lenses and let the light shine through. So you’ll have better night time visibility for peace of mind on the road.
