took less than 30 minutes ... u just have too let it cure for 24hrs.
i only had to do 1 headlight since the right one was recently replaced.
Easy way to get a clean new look on an old hazed light.

I wish it worked for me. It made my headlights slightly less yellow.

Although I don't really think it'll work I bought the 3M version. Hopefully it will work, we'll see how it goes.

if they're bad enough it takes a few attempts. for my dad's '97 Grand Cherokee with almost 300k, it took four seperate attempts with the 3M kit to get them close to perfect.

That hazing will be back as soon as you know it. The reason for this is because the UV protectant layer that was on your headlights when your car was brand new has faded and worn away from the elements over the years. Because its gone, the hazing will be back as soon as the sun starts beating down on the plastic again. What you need to do to prevent it from coming back is to get a rattle can of clear coat and spray your headlights with a couple coats.

if you don't want to spray them with clear, you can also just wax them regularly

I'll have to try this. I just bought an 04 with slightly yellow headlights. They shouldn't yellow too much if the car lives in a garage, should they?

That will slow the process, but as long as you drive outside and park in parking lots, it'll still get yellow.
