Headlight restoration in what way?

Discoloration, chipping, hazing, reflector rusting, etc... (Not that I have any suggestions, but it would help, I imagine).

Just saw your sig. line and I'm assuming that it is for your rig, with 8"-ish round headlights?

No, it's my company truck; '98 Dakota and my wife's '97 F150.

Both have that dingy yellowing plastic. I know there are kits out there that claim to make them good as new. Just wondered if anyone has used them and how long it lasts..

Maybe it's just an Arizona sun issue...

Might not be relevant(sp), but when I was visiting the US last summer, my buddy and I tried to mend the flaking of his Grand Cherokee with one of those products.

Well... first they have you rub the surface with this (sand)paper thingy and it just scratched the hell out of the surface...

Hope you come across a better product.:D

I have polished plastic lenses with varying grits of wet-sanding and then rubbing compound, it will make it shiny, but I don't know about the yellowing.

My rep from Carquest was pimping some stuff at me the other day.

He says it works great.
Thanks Gumby,
I've got a Carquest in my little podunk town, I'll let you know if their product is any good.
