To use the 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System, first use automotive masking tape to tape off areas of the vehicle that should not be sanded or polished. Next, attach the sanding discs to a portable drill, and sand the offending surface in two steps. In both steps, the surface should be wet sanded until all dullness is removed and the light is smooth to the touch; achieve this by first spraying the light with clean water and then sanding. Use the plastic polish and a buffing pad attached to a portable drill to polish the light until the plastic is appropriately clear. Remove the masking tape to complete the task.

The 3M Headlight Restoration System includes a disc pad holder, an interface pad, six sanding discs, four finishing discs and a trizact disc. It also includes the polishing compound and one buffing pad. Automotive masking tape, a spray bottle and water for wet sanding and a portable drill are not provided. Each kit is intended for use on two headlights, and repair time takes less than one hour.
