How many lenses does one kit do?

answer 1
It easily does 2 headlights with some of the first stage pads left over. If you really were extra careful, you might be able to do 3 but I think 4 would be a struggle. The last sanding pad (the polish pad) only has one in the kit, so I think that would be your limiting factor. Also depends on how bad your headlights are, as the worse they are the more sanding required.

I used a cordless drill on mine and just got the first headlight done with the kit. Ran out of the first sanding discs. My cordless drill was supposed to run at 1400rpm on high, but in hindsight I would say it doesnt' run that fast. I only got that one headlight done with the kit. I bought another kit, and another CORDED drill that does run at 1400rpm, and that second headlight went so much faster and easier. Amazing results. Really. Just make sure you have the correct tools and the time and patience to do it right. Others have reported that they do more than one car with one kit, so I'm assuming they had the right drill for the job.

I would say it depends on severity of the dullness of your headlights. My headlights were very dull and I used most of the sanding pads. I believe I have 1 left of each grade so I could probably do one more really dull headlight or 2 headlights that have minor dullness.

I just purchased an 07 Eclipse that had one cloudy lens, and this kit made the lens look like new. I have a couple of deep scratches about 1/4 of an inch long that were too deep to sand out, but they are hardly noticeable. All the cloudiness in the lens is gone and it looks sweet.

answer 2
If the scratches are light, yes it will. You will just need to polish them with the 500 grit media longer until you can't see the scratches anymore. Clean the sanding media with a blast of compressed air if you have a lot to do. I think you'll be pleased with the kit's performance. Just carefully follow the instructions and be patient. It'll be worth your effort.

If the scratches are not deep, they will take care of the scratches. You actually sand down the lens which causes fine scratches. With each pad the scratches become finer until it because mostly clear (has a little haze). Then you polish it and it's crystal clear. Just take your time and don't push down hard.

Will this help frosted foggy looking headlights?

My headlights look frosted over even though they should be clear. When you wet them they look clear but when they dry they go back to a dingy frosty fogged look and you can't see anything. Will this help or is the problem on the inside? Tried a cheap $6 kit and it did nothing to help.

Yes, it will even correct any problem from the kit you used prior (if any) and completely remove the foggy, dingy look of the oxidized plastic. Don't rush through it, let the drill do the work (don't apply too much pressure) and keep the surface lubricated with water and your headlights will look as close to new as you could want when they are polished out.

This kit is made to restore the outside of your headlight. Usually the frosting is on the outside of the lens because of the weather elements. If the frosting is on the outside it will make them clear and look almost brand new.

If they look clear when you wet them, than I'm assuming the damage is on the outside of the lens. So yes this kit will help. Just be sure to follow instructions, including using a good CORDED drill that runs around 1400rpm. See my review for pics of how bad my car was, and what I was able to do with this kit. If your's only look frosted, you'll have an easy go at it. Mine were yellowed badly with alot of crazing and pitting, and you can see how it turned out. Nothing short of amazing!

I believe so. B'coz this kit comes with sanding paper and it require you to remove a layer from that foggy plastic cover surface. Don't worry of sanding because it comes with polishing compound as well. Just follow the instructions given in the pack and when it comes to sanding don't hesitate to remove a good layer of plastic!

I got both of mine done on a 99 Contour which has large lights. The sanding pads I still had more that could do another set. The final sanding disk that you use showed some wear and there is only one of these per kit. Also the rubbing compound that you get is in a small packet. If you were to do 2 cars at the same time I think that you could get away with it. I am very happy with the results. My headlights are like glass now.

it works for 2 lenses. But, like the packaging says, it depends on how badly oxidized your headlights are. If they are really bad, you may need another kit. It comes with multiple sanding pads, but only one wet sanding disk and polishing disk.

1 kit: mild to moderate scratching/yellowing

2 kits: moderate to severe scratches/yellowing.

its worth the money because the results are very noticeable.

There was no tape included in my kit. What I did, since I'm a house painter, I used my regular blue painting tape on the car to prevent sticking. Then I laid duct tape over the blue tape for real protection. I didn't have a single mar on my car around the headlights, and I went at it pretty good. So I guess the answer is no, there is no tape included, but there are easy work arounds.

I don't see why it wouldn't, as long as they are pretty round and not any weird shaped lenses. Kinda overkill though, in my opinion. Try one of the hand sanding kits instead if that is all you need it for.

I think it would work on any plastic housing for any light. Plastic is key. It says not to use on glass. But glass wouldn't sun fade to begin with.

It will work on any plastic flat surface. I have never seen a tail light that is worn out like a headlight.

I used it on my head lights, however there are instructions in the kit for using it on brake lights.

I would probably just try polishing a brake light before I sanded it, you may discolor the red lens if you sand it.

I can't say for sure, but I'd guess it would do just fine. It removed the oxidation completely from the front lens and left it looking brand new.

I think it should. Have used it in front light so dont see any problem in using it on red brake light.

Yes, but only 1oz. It was enough for 2 head lights for me, but you have to pay attention to how much you use. Follow instructions!!
