Rated 3 out of 5 by Well thought-out product, results may vary... The headlight was slightly clouded and does look a little better - but nothing like in the pictures. Surfaces scratches from the various sanding grits are still visible, and no, I didn't rush the process. The other problem is with applying the clear coat. Seems like it should be easy and straightforward but it really requires some practice b/c you need to apply the single coat (no reapplying!) in one fell swoop, making sure to cover everything and overlap strokes just a hair. I missed a couple places and retouched a couple areas which affected the clarity and texture… Seems like a good product, just not the easiest to use, unless you're a pro. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked Great ! Kit had everything necessary - just add water (for washing and rinsing) and some elbow grease. Used on a 7 year old Honda Odyssey with grossly clouded headlight lenses. I didn't expect much, but thought it was worth a $20 try. Results were amazing. Lenses are as clear as new. Read the instructions twice before starting; watching the video might be helpful as well - so you don't over-think and over-work each of the steps. I took my time - took about one hour (Odyssey has large headlight lenses). November 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the money and effort The final outcome from applying this product is lenses as clear as when they are new. Not only are they clearer and better looking, but cast the light where it was 100k miles ago. Set aside plenty of time and be prepared to apply some elbow grease, but it's definitely well worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hands down the longest lasting headlight restoration kit I've used other headlight restoration kits before, but none of them ever maintained it's clear finish like this kit has. It's been 3 weeks since I first applied the kit to my 2005 Chrysler Crossfire, and it STILL looks brand new and no yellow, foggy, cataract, lens haze has returned yet! The kit literally has everything you need in the box (glove and masking tape included). It took me about 15 mins on each headlight for a good quality job. I'm very pleased with the results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beat the heck out of the dealers $300.00 appraisal!!! Product worked just as shown via the on-line video, everything i needed was in the kit. did the job in about 35 minutes, start to finish. significant other and a bunch of the neighbors were amazed, at the end result. several offered to buy the kit and have me do the labor for $75.00 cash. i told them too get only the Sylvania kit, from the Home Depot and i would do the labor part for them. thanks for such great service and a really good product.
