Just a quick, somewhat personal post.

I’m not a big car guy.  I have a 2003 Suzuki Aerio that gets me from A to B and beyond. It is lovingly referred to as “the Tardis”.

Safety is important to me – the first thing I did when I got the car was to take out the standard headlight bulbs and replace them with bulbs that are a little brighter and have a better spread.

Of course, as time goes on, the plastic of any headlight dulls and hazes.
I‘ve heard of and have seen miracle cures for dulling plastic and thought I’d give one a try.

Just a quick search on eBay returned more than a few options.   I opted for the Crystal Clear Results Headlight Cleaner Restorer.

Just $5 got me a little, unlabeled, pot of cleaner and a sheet of instructions.  Essentially just rub it on and wipe it off.

In my opinion, and in my case, it does work!

See the before and after pictures below.   I noticed a marked difference as soon as I started rubbing the polish on.
The pictures are from the passenger side.  I did start with the driver’s side which was a little worse.

It didn’t take much. Just a couple of dabs. I still have a lot left if you’re in Pittsburgh and want to try it for yourself.

In all – yes, it does work. For $5 you can’t go wrong really.
