Nothing is more annoying than cloudy, oxidized headlight and tail light housings on a freshly washed and detailed vehicle. Sure, upgrading to aftermarket lenses that feature newfangled LED lighting is an option, but if you're a fan of the stock, OE look, don't go to the dealer for a new set. Instead of dropping more money than the cost of cooler aftermarket products, we looked to Mothers' new PowerBall 4Lights Headlight Restoration kit to refresh our sad and beat up tail lights. Yes, the kit was developed for headlights, but works extremely well on any yellowing, cloudy piece of plastic. The all-in-one kit comes with everything needed to cure our ailing tail lights in under an hour, and for less than $30. Interested? Follow along to see the difference a little polish, and a few minutes of work can make.

The Mothers Headlight Restoration worked better than expected on our pale rear plastic. The tired tail lights look like they needed to be retired, but Mothers' PowerPlastic polish quickly rejuvenated them. The best part about the Headlight Restoration kit, other than its miniscule price tag, is the fact that we can use the kit whenever the lenses need a slight touch up, plus we will most certainly find more uses for the PowerBall 4Lights polishing tool.
