Default Headlight Restoration - 2004 STi

What pad do I use with compound to restore my headlights to clear? I have read that using a pad, compound, and drill followed by buffing with a microfiber towel with bring my headlights to almost new.

Just buy one of the many kits on the market. You'll be constantly redoing it though unless you get a proper automotive 2k clear.

Personally I just use plastic polish whenever I do any of my cars and it seems to do well. I already have buffing pads and a DA polisher so I typically just use the "middle" coarseness pad (I'm not a body guy by any means, I just have pads from Harbor Freight... I use the blue one). If it's really bad I'll wet sand it with a really high grit sandpaper first, but usually I don't have to do that with the DA polisher. I haven't cleared over any of mine afterward, although I'm sure that's not a bad idea.
