to polish plastic you really don't need a special kit. Any kind of buffer and a polish will clean them up.

That kit is definitely worth it though. You get a range of scuf pads, polish, UV protectant and the polishing attachment.
I've polished headlights different ways before, but I don't think I'll go back.

3M kit is where it's at, couple dollars more but better stuff in it. Either way, nice improvement. It's always nice to get rid of the oxidation.

Good results. I do my own with various grits of sand paper and a polish.

I have done more than 100 sets of lights by now, and wouldn't do it any other way.

A suggestion, when I do cobra lights, I usually shave the tits off, it takes a little more work, and a little more paper, but it makes it sooooo much better.

I wish i had done this. It would have made it easier.
