    Has anyone used headlight restoration kits at all on their Hondas and has anyone got any recomendations for them, as I have seen that they sell Meguirs ones in Halfords priced at £22.
    I recently used a Turtle Wax one on my aunties Astra G (4th generation) and it certainly improved them a whole lot, as they where yellow and now they are much better.
    I'm just looking at different makes and seeing which one works best.

    So this is for product recomendations only. I don't need any guides.

    what I meant in my post was not how to do it, but what products have people used that they can recomend.

    I used this two years ago and headlights have been fine ever since. Highly recommended.

    @RogerH69 used it too after my recommendation a while back, guides here but unfortunately the pics are gone. It's very well explained so should be OK

    Take a look at my project thread. I used the 3M headlight restoration kit, you can buy it on Amazon and eBay. I bought mine from Amazon for £17.

    It comes with a drill attachment and various assorted sanding discs, as well as rubbing compound and a buffing pad. You also get some tape so you can mask off the areas around your headlights. The pack will easily do two Accord headlights.

    Highly recommend that kit.

    Do these kits come with laquer or some other finishing product to seal the headlights up?

    They don't, you have to buy it separately for £8.

    The turtle wax one I used on my aunties astra came with a sealing wipe you rubbed over the lights and I think thr meguirs one has some kind of protector in the box.

    @exec - I used this after I used the 3M Kit on my headlight, and it seems to work perfectly.
