      When I'm out of polishing kit products, I use toothpaste. It works just the same for me. But I normally use the Sylvania kit most of the time though.

      Are you high? This town's job market is horrid, as well as a lot of other things.

      Never used it.

      I have used this duplicolor kit though. It has a buffing compound to clean up the headlight housing. Then it has a UV resistant clear coat to protect the light from re-yellowing. I used it on a couple cars now and it has worked well for me. The longest I've had a car after using it was 1 year and the headlights were still clear.

      Dupli-Color EHLR10000 Headlight Restoration Kit


      I'd also be tempted to try this product by 3M. It also provides UV protection which is what you need for your fix to stay clear. Its also really cheap.

      I used the Turtle Wax kit and followed up with Brasso. Brasso is a trick I learned from old TV's with plastic lenses in front of the old CRT. Don't forget to use the little sealant cloth that comes with the Turtle Wax kit.

      What's the worst thing it can happen if you use too much of this stuff. Can it eat away the plastic or something?
