Restoring the Magnum’s Yellow Hazy Headlights with the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit

Another successful Headlight Restore with the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit this time on the Magnum.  After my first success with the 2005 Hyundai Tuscon,  I bought another kit for my 2005 Dodge Magnum, it was $15 on amazon and now at the time of this video it’s down to $10.  The kit included everything I needed to achieve these results in just about an hour.  The only thing I needed was my  trusty Ryobi One+ drill which I forgot to charge.  We went from hazy, cloudy, yellowed headlights to crisp bright clear lights with a little bit of effort.   The difference is huge, it’s immediately noticeable when you approach the car and provides a lot more light while driving because the light is no longer being diffused by the hazy lenses.  When I did the Hyundai, at first I tried to do it by hand sanding the lights, but this method was taking forever, after picking up the 3M Headlight Restoration Kit I was cutting through the yellow haze 10x faster with my Drill.

 

As I mentioned in this video, I highly recommend you find something to protect your freshly polished headlights from those harmful UV rays.  I didn’t want to mask off the entire car to spray a UV resistant non-yellowing clear coat like the Rust-Oleum 327864 2x Clear.   I used the more expensive, but far easier option of coating it in Chemical Guys Jet Seal and letting it set for 20 minutes.  It may be more expensive, but it’s not a single use product.  I always have Chemical Guys Jet Seal on hand, I use it every few months to coat my wheels, glass and paint.  I find it creates a nice slick surface that dirt, brake dust and bird poo does not like to stick to.  It also has desirable water beading property on the windows and windshield.

 

Note:  The 3M Headlight Restoration Kit will get your headlights clear, but you may see  imperfections deep in the plastic that you cannot get out.  Please don’t expect crystal clear new from the factory headlights, all the years of rock chips and other age related imperfections will be visible up close, but trust me your headlights will look 100x better both visually and provide more light output while driving.

ProClip – Dodge Challenger Left Dash Mount Item 805336 

ProClip Discount code = WorkPlayDrive

The new mount is awesome, I use Google Maps and Waze constantly for navigation and traffic, Yes I know the Car comes with Navigation on the 8.4 uConnect, but seriously, the maps are outdated, traffic is meh… and having to pay for year old updates is insane!  I’ve been using ProClip in ALL my vehicles for many years now and will continue to do so for as long as they are making mounts for my car.  I originally had the ProClip Dodge Challenger Angled Mount Item 855052. But I find the ProClip Challenger Left Dash Mount Item 805336 to me a much better solution for my Waze and Google maps needs.  If you want a ProClip of your own head over to proclipusa.com and use their wizard to properly spec the hlder for your phone with or without a case, and if you have a different car their wizard has you covered for that as well.

Grdian Dash Cams

Grdian Discount code = WorkPlayDrive

The Grdian Defendr+ has been my dash cam in the challenger for a few years now, Rock solid, great resolution and totally reliable.  I recently picked up the Grdian Krios mini To protect my “New to Me” 2005 Dodge Magnum.  Just so you know the Magnum was paid for by the insurance money from a hit and run.  The payment was thanks to the dash cam footage I provided to the police and insurance companies.  The Hellcat is patiently waiting for the Grdian Krios Pro to Drop any day now.  The first AFFORDABLE dual camera system, if his system is anything like their last 2 models it will be a game changer, allowing car lovers a less expensive dual camera option.  Purchases from Grdian using my codes sends a small percentage of your sale to my channel, Thank you for your support!!
