Vehicle: Chevy Cobalt
Restoration Kit: 3M Headlight Restoration Kit
Another day another headlight restoration. This time on a Chevrolet Cobalt that has fallen victim to yet another case of oxidized yellowing headlights from natural causes. The solution is the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit that will bring these headlights back to life.
Make sure you buy your handy 3M Headlight Restoration Kit at one of our preferred retailers. This specific kit was the 39045 kit.
Once you have the kit you can lay it all out and see the contents here:
Make sure you mask off the headlights using the highly rated 3M Automotive Masking Tape. You can see the conditions of the headlight are quite bad.
Make the first pass with the 320 grit pad. It will cause the headlight to look more foggier.
Perform the same thing with the 500 grit pad. There will be a slight improvement.
Here is how it looks after passing through with the 800 grit pad.
Here’s how it looks after using the Trizact foam disk and water.
Finally the last thing is to use the orange pad and headlight polish and you should get something that looks like this!
