Our Rating:

4.5 Stars (4.5 / 5)

3M 39014 Lens Renewal Kit is a great kit for restoring your headlights.  Although it requires a typical household drill, we can’t give it negative points for this.  Utilizing a drill helps our sandpaper perform better and remove more oxidation than your hand.  This kit includes everything needed to perform a headlight restoration to your vehicle.  We suggest purchasing 1500 grit wet sandpaper to help with the jump from 800 to 3000.  We recommend being very liberal with the included tape to help prevent scratching your vehicles paint.  Go slowly while you get the hang of sanding with a drill  — rushing increases the chance of an accident.  Keeping constant movement of the pad or sandpaper is necessary to avoid burning the headlight.  This kit does not include a headlight sealant, and we recommend purchasing one.  If you do not have a drill, consider checking out our list of headlight restoration kits that don’t require tools.
