Deep Woods Off Works Great

It worked great and depending on how much a person drives and where they drive made a difference.

If You do a lot of highway driving. it lasts about 6-8 weeks. The fumes from diesels are the hardest on the lights along with weather conditions.

For a few that that only drive to Church on Sunday and the grocery stores, It was applied a year ago and still looks good.

A small bottle or can costs about $5-7.00.

Better than the $225. dollars we paid to replace the headlights on Our 1999 MH a few years ago..

So I don't know how long the shine will last. I do know this stuff is cheap and easy. And there's enough stuff in the bottle to last for years.

Before I found this stuff I gave some thought to using DuPont #7 Buffing Compound. I once used that restoring a MGB roadster, made all the colored plastic lenses look new.

We did my wife's Freestar van and my daughters Honda. My '07 F-150 with 136,000 miles, has never needed it. Go figure.
You can then protect with 303 about every 6 weeks. Later RJD

For $30 Wal-Mart does it for you and it lasts for years. Had my XL-7 done there they were still like new 4 years later when I sold it. Had my Pathfinder done last year still look like new.

stuff works great.

I've also used Maguires plastic polish as well.

I 1st use 3M Plastic Cleaner, then 3M Plastic Polish, and finish up with Meguiars Flagship Premium Marine Wax. I just did the wife's Accord over the weekend. I tape the surrounding paint, and do several coats/rub offs with the Cleaner until the headlights clear up, the a couple of coats with the Polish to do get some more luster, then the wax for the UV protection
