Toothpaste Headlight Restoration | 2013-06-07

My headlights failed inspection because they were too oxidized and dim. They wanted to charge me $91 for it. Not a totally unfair price to pass inspection for a whole year; but of course, I didn't want to pay.

Headlights Before and After Toothpaste

Following the instructions in the video below, I made a drastic improvement in my headlights which allowed my car to pass inspection. My $700 car is still going strong after 6 years with minimal maintenance and always has functioning heat, AC, and stereo. Everything the body needs.

Just like the guy in the video, I recommend toothpaste with crystals or granules or whatever you want to call them. The little extra abrasive seems to help.

After I was done conditioning the headlights, I sprayed them with WD-40. I do not know if this does anything or why I did it.
