FAQs

WHAT CONDITION ARE YOUR HEADLIGHTS IN? CAN THE BE DEOXIDIZED OR DO THEY HAVE TO BE RESURFACED?
1. DO YOU SEE FLAKES PEELING OFF YOUR LENS?
2. DOES YOUR LENS APPEAR TO HAVE A THIN LAYER OF PLASTIC WEARING OFF THE SURFACE?
3. IS THE LENS  DEEPLY PITTED?
4. ARE THERE SCRATCHES VISIBLE ON THE SURFACE OF THE LENS?
5. DOES THE LENS APPEAR TO HAVE THOUSANDS OF TINY MICRO FRACTURES IN IT?

THESE ARE CONDITIONS THAT GO BEYOND THE EFFECT OF NATURAL OXIDATION.
THESE LENS ARE DAMAGED AND CANNOT BE RESTORED TO CLARITY WITH DEOXIDATION ALONE.

THEY CAN BE RESURFACED WITH A COMPLEX SANDING AND POLISHING SYSTEM BUT NON OF THE HAND SANDING HEADLIGHT KITS HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO REPAIR THE
DAMAGE DESCRIBED ABOVE.

On the other hand
1. IF YOUR LENS SURFACE IS CLOUDY.
2. IF THE SURFACE OF YOUR LENS ARE OPAQUE.
3. IF THE SURFACE OF YOUR LENS ARE WHITE.
4. IF THE SURFACE OF YOUR LENS ARE YELLOW.
5. IF THE SURFACE OF YOUR LENS ARE BROWN
6. IF THE OXIDATION BUILD UP IS SO THICK ON YOUR LENS THAT NO LIGHT CAN COME THROUGH.

THEY CAN BE RESTORED TO FULL CLARITY IN SECONDS WITH PITTMAN ORIGINAL ALR AND MAINTAINED WITH VAPORWAX APC 360ID INDEFINITELY

NEVER TAKE ADVICE FROM SOMEONE WHO CANNOT TELL YOU THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UV DAMAGE AND OXIDATION.

OXIDATION DOES NOT CAUSE THE LENS TO TURN YELLOW
OXIDATION IS NOT CAUSED BY UV RAYS
SANDPAPER WET OR DRY IS THE KISS OF DEATH TO THE PROTECTIVE UV LAYER

DESPITE WHAT YOU MAY HAVE READ IN INTERNET FORUMS AND ADVERTISEMENT FOR HEADLIGHT CLEANING KITS. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
OXIDATION, UV DAMAGE AND SURFACE DAMAGE
YOU NEED TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE THREE.

Yellowing is caused by Ultra Violet rays from the sun. With the UV layer intact the rays are effectively blocked from reaching the lens. The white oxidation which forms
on top of the UV layer will turn yellow and brown from a combination of ultra violet rays and contaminants.
This does not effect the lens below. However once this UV layer is severely damaged or removed the UV rays can reach the lens and cause it to turn yellow. When this
happens there is no recovery.  The yellow will permeate the lens and cause the lens it's self to turn yellow.  This yellowing is permanent, and your lens will continue to
oxidize at an accelerated rate. Removing the oxidation will not remove the yellow nor can it be sanded or polished away.

THIS DOES NOT EFFECT THE LENS UNDERNEATH. THE CLARITY OF THIS LENS CAN BE FULLY RESTORED

However once this UV layer is severely damaged or removed the UV rays can reach the lens and cause it to turn yellow. When this happens there is no recovery.  The
yellow will permeate the lens.  This yellowing is permanent.
At this point your lens will continue oxidize and now the lens is exposed to the effect of UV rays. You have two problems.
Removing the oxidation will not remove the yellow nor can this yellow be sanded or polished away.

NO SANDPAPER, TOOLS, DRILLS, GOGGLES, GLOVES, BUFFING, ELBOW GREASE COMPLEX INSTRUCTIONS SEALERS OR MULTIPLE
STEPS. THE APPLICATION IS EFFORTLESS. DEOXIDIZES ON CONTACT

 

ATTENTION
OXIDATION DOES NOT CAUSE THE LENS TO TURN YELLOW. SURFACE OXIDATION IS NOT CAUSED BY UV RAYS DESPITE WHAT YOU MAY HAVE READ IN INTERNET FORUMS. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OXIDATION, UV DAMAGE AND SURFACE DAMAGE. YOU NEED TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE THREE.

Got a question about sandpaper... Ask a caveman they are true experts on "grit"

You got a question about oxidation?...
You've gone beyond the caveman's realm of consciousness.

He doesn't understand that oxidation and plastic are separate entities with a common bond..His primitive mind cannot process the fact that oxidation
can be removed without sandpaper or abrasive polish.
These people are living in the past, they fear what they don't understand like the caveman feared fire.

Pittman ALR has left the caveman CONFUSED, BEWILDERED and in a state of DEMENTED ABANDONMENT.
The caveman sees the simple world he knew evolving. He has witnessed the advent of a science that is alien to him and he is frightened. He knows his
primitive world is coming to an end.     
WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU.

Most Internet detail forums are owned or operated by Cavemen who either own detail product companies or are sponsored by them.
They have consistently banned enlightened members who speak out about the effectiveness of Pittman ALR.
However puppet members who attack Pittman products are supported and praised.

DON'T BE FOOLED INTO DESTROYING YOUR ORIGINAL FACTORY FINISH AND SHINE BY THIS CHARADE.
IT IS NOT THE CAVEMAN'S WISH TO EMPOWER YOU WITH KNOWLEDGE THAT WILL PROVE HIS METHODS TO BE PRIMITIVE AND OBSOLETE.
THE CAVEMAN DOES NOT WANT YOU TO THINK INDEPENDENTLY,  HE WANTS TO CONTROL WHAT YOU SEE AND THINK
DID YOU KNOW, THAT IN IT'S NATURAL FORM CARNUABA WAX CAN BECOME A HARD AS STONE?
FACT:
WHILE CARNUABA WAX IS PRAISED FOR IT'S HARDNESS AND SHINE IT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST WAXES TO REMOVE FROM YOUR PAINT.  IT IS RESISTANT TO WATER, SOAP AND HEAT TO UPWARDS OF 150 DEGREES.  IT WILL DULL AS ALL NATURAL WAX WILL AND REQUIRE REMOVAL. AT THIS POINT CARNUABA BECOMES YOUR PAINTS WORST ENEMY. REMOVAL WILL REQUIRE ABRASIVES OR CHEMICALS THAT WILL TAKE A IMMEDIATE TOLL ON YOUR PAINT'S FINISH.
GOOGLE CANUABA WAX
AND EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE REALITIES THAT ARE IMPORTANT FOR  YOU TO KNOW IF YOU INTEND ON APPLYING SUCH A SUBSTANCE TO  YOUR ACRYLIC PAINT
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
NOTE:
If you used a machine buffer or an abrasive cleaner, cream, paste, sandpaper, or harsh chemical product on your headlight lens or paint  in the past. Your Lens and paint finish cannot be fully restored. Your U.V layer and factory finish has been damaged. The improvement will be noticeable but not 100%.

If you are looking for a common low tech headlight cleaner, wax, scratch remover or polish,  ALR, APC &
ALR*C are NOT the products for you.

CAN I USE PITTMAN ORIGINAL  ALR*C ON A NEW CAR?
KLR CUT/ ALR*C  is designed to remove heavy oxidation deposits from vehicles. These deposits are thick and encrusted to the paint, New vehicles
do not suffer from such heavy oxidation, for new cars and cars with light to moderate oxidation VaporWax is the recommended product.

How often do I have to apply ALR*C to my paint?

Once. The type of oxidation build up ALR*C  removes takes years to develop.

Can I wax my car with my choice of  wax after using ALR*C?

YES, you can use your choice of  Last step products, However for the very best results we recommend using VaporWax acrylic paint conditioner.

Can I use ALR*C on my headlights?

Yes ALR*C will remove oxidation and condition acrylic headlights and tail lights on contact.

Does ALR*C need to be removed after applying?

NO .... ALR*C is a conditioning deoxidizer, it can be rubbed into and left on the paint, headlights or any acrylic surface.

Do I have to wash my car before applying ALR*C?

NO, ALR*C can be applied to a dirty vehicle however better results are always achieved by starting with a clean dry surface.

Why does VaporWax cost more than wax, I can get a 16oz bottle of wax for less 1/2 oz of VaporWax.
VaporWax is not wax, It is a new generation acrylic paint conditioner. A 100% pure liquid, non abrasive, non organic formula unique in the market.
VaporWax APC 360ID is Target Specific which is 90% percent more efficient than wax, there is virtually no waste. Waste is inherent with the application of wax.
Residue in your applicator, buffing towel or pad, clothes and worst of all in the folds and crevices of your vehicle. Add all that waste up and you will find,  that 90% of the wax you put on your car does not stay on the car.
It is actually a very thin layer that remains when you get finish buffing the dry wax off the car.

I applied VaporWax to my car it looks kind of hazy or smeared.
You applied TOO MUCH VaporWax, When applying VaporWax it should be spread across the surface of the vehicle until it disappears. VaporWax is not a wax and should not be applied like wax,It only takes a thin film of VaporWax to condition your paint.

I applied VaporWax to my car for the first time, it does not shine as it should and feels sticky whats wrong?
A common mistake in the initial application of VaporWax is applying it over a waxed surface. There can be NO WAX on the car when you apply VaporWax,
Wax and VaporWax will not mix. VaporWax will desolve wax.
Hot water and dish washing liquid is the safest method for removing wax.

Claying is obsolete.
Unlike organic wax, VaporWax does not harden and has powerful cleaning agents that remove contaminants as it conditions the paint, leaving it
silky smooth with no residue and no film to trap and hold particles. VaporWax never dulls and it never has to be removed..

With VaporWax over 90% of formula ends up on your paint,
A small percentage ends up in your towel. There is no hardening or chalky residue. This means the same towel used to apply VaporWax APC can be used for touch ups and light dusting's with excellent results.
The shine is instant and it performs beyond the capability of wax. VaporWax always produces an effortless brilliant mirror like shine. It is both water
proof and provides rust resistance and it does not dull or smear like wax.  

VaporWax like OneStep ALR is unique in that it can be applied in any weather,
from sub zero cold to hot direct sunlight. It has infinite shelf life and will out last any hard wax or polish in storage.

There is no solid or liquid wax, paste or polish that will perform as long or as consistently as VaporWax in protecting and preserving the original
finish on your vehicle, all year around. No soap needed between washings saves you time and money,  
Clear water is enough to bring back the VaporWax shine.

Applied monthly VaporWax is guaranteed to preserve your vehicles finish and keep your new paint looking new.
VaporWax also brings back color and shine to older vehicles faster and better than any product on the market. Easy to and apply as any water based spray on wax with the long lasting "waterproof"  protection only an acrylic conditioner can provide.

In addition VaporWax takes a fraction of the time it takes to apply wax, which leaves you more time to enjoy your vehicle from the inside.

VaporWax is a new generation product in a class by its self,

Will they work on my light bar?

Yes it will, light bars are formed out of the same thermoplastic base as all other translucent lens in your vehicle. Light bars will oxidize over the
surface and dull the intensity of the strobe. ALR will deoxidize them as easily as it will headlights and tail lights and APC will prevent oxidation from
returning


People have always told me waxing a car is the best way to protect the paint, How can it be bad now?

Wax serves its purpose in many instances but it does more harm than good on modern acrylic paint. You only have to look closely at a car that has a
few years of waxing on it and you can see the damage in spider web scratches and swirl marks in the paint. Once you take the wax off a car you see
the dulling effects the application of wax has left on the paint
Now you find that without wax the paint looks horrible, How did this happen?
Repetitious friction based motion of rubbing on wax, letting it dry. Rubbing off harden wax will do it every time. Old fashion enamel could take the
rubbing and polish but modern acrylic has a unique shine that is millimeters thin and cannot be duplicated by any after market method. The mirror like shine of acrylic paint needs to be preserved. Wax is not a preservative its an obsolete cover up. Each application of wax will further damage the factory finish on your vehicle. This fact has not escaped the major wax companies as they have been producing alternatives to wax for years now.
Will it work on my tail lights?

Yes, tail lights are essentially the same material as headlights and Light bars, turn signals parking, lights, marker lights and backup lights.
I have several coats of wax on my car, would it be ok to put the VaporWax on the wax or do I have to remove the wax?

VaporWax needs to be applied directly to the paint. The directions stress that the car must be clean, that means no wax or other contaminant on the surface. Wax will become gummy  and tacky if sprayed with VaporWax. VaporWax will dissolve natural wax. The surface of your vehicle should be squeaky clean to the touch. VaporWax will create a protective barrier of Conditioner on the surface of the paint.
We get a lot of rain, I like to touch my car up every day, can I put VaporWax on my car after washing with clear water?

Yes you can, and you can do it every day, but for best results you should:
Remove dust on the paint first. After the initial application of VaporWax a soft damp clean cloth will effectively remove any dust that accumulated on your car .
Turn towel frequently as it accumulates dust as not to rub the dust across the rest of the vehicle. Always start at the top and work your way down to to the bottom, Your towel will stay cleaner longer. Spray a little VaporWax on a clean towel and quick detail the car. Use this method to avoid getting VaporWax on Glass windows. This method is also best when applying VaporWax on a Hot Vehicle. For best results spray VaporWax directly on the paint only after washing and drying the car. After the initial application of VaporWax, touch ups require very little VaporWax or effort. Touch ups are quick and beneficial to the paint, and will maintain a showroom shine.

Will VaporWax protect my chrome wheels too?

VaporWax is the ideal treatment for chrome wheels in areas
where snow and salt are a problem.  Clean and dry chrome
wheels. Apply generous amount to chrome and use a soft bristled
paint brush to spread VaporWax evenly over the chrome
surface. Leave this layer of protection on the wheels. When washing
the car do not use soap. Brush the chrome with a soft brush
and water. This layer can survive several clear water washings before it
should be replaced. Chrome wheels will have a polished aluminum look when
VaporWax is initially brushed on, This will prevent salt from attaching itself to the chrome, prevent corrosion and preserve the original beauty of the
chrome, Wash wheel with soap and water to remove conditioner and
reveal a brilliant chrome shine.

Can VaporWax be used on my car bra?
Yes VaporWax will leave a beautiful shine on your car bra.

  1. First wash the bra to insure it is clean.
  2. Rinse and leave wet.
  3. Spray VaporWax on wet surface.
  4. Wipe in.
The shine is brilliant. The conditioning effect keeps the vinyl soft, resisting cracks and splits. After your initial application of VaporWax, no soap is needed when
washing but the bra will need another application of VaporWax after each washing. Keep your car bra looking good and lasting longer than with any
other product.

 

Will VaporWax make Rain water bead like wax?

No VaporWax will not make water bead like wax.

VaporWax has a unique beading system that prevents  Rain water
from creating spots on the paint
.

VaporWax will cause rain water to create large rolling beads that rolls off
the car while it breaks down smaller beads into smaller and smaller
irregular shaped beads until they dissipate.

Rain water will not spot when left to dry on VaporWax.

Due to additives in tap water, Tap water will spot if left to dry on
VaporWax, However the spots are very easily removed with a damp
cloth

What is the difference between an acrylic sealant and acrylic conditioner.

An acrylic sealant is just a new catch name for old products, Don't be fooled.
Since VaporWax Acrylic Paint Conditioner appeared, a lot of wax sellers are using the word acrylic in the description of their products.
There is no comparison of any companies acrylic sealant with VaporWax acrylic paint conditioner.
We are the only company to produce a 100% pure liquid acrylic paint conditioner.
These other products are primarily paint sealers. glazes and polishes. They have been around for decades.
There is nothing new about these renamed acrylic sealants, they consists of the same old formulas
SOME FORUMS SAY THAT THE OLD BUFFING AND WAXING METHOD IS THE ONLY WAY TO FIX WORN PAINT

THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE  WHO TELL YOU TO USE ABRASIVES TO REMOVE OXIDATION FROM YOUR HEADLIGHTS. THINK ABOUT IT. HOW DO YOU FIX  ACRYLIC PAINT WITH FRICTION AND WAX?  WHAT PART OF THE PROCESS TURNS WAX INTO PAINT?

WAX IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE WAX AND THE PAINT DAMAGE STILL EXISTS BENEATH THE WAX. THE FORUMS THAT PROMOTE THIS PROCESS HAVE
AN AGENDA THE ARE LOADED WITH SPONSORS WHO SELL WAX.
BUFFING WAX IS NOT GOING TO CHEMICALLY CHANGE IT INTO ACRYLIC PAINT.

THE FINISH PRODUCT IS COSMETIC, LITERALLY, MAKEUP NOT UNLIKE THE KIND SOLD AT COSMETIC COUNTERS. THE OLD PAINT IS STILL OLD PAINT
AND THE AMOUNT OF WORK NEEDED TO  APPLY THIS MAKE UP IS EXCESSIVE.

MODERN ANALYSIS REVEALS SERIOUS FLAWS IN THAT DAMAGING ARCHAIC INEFFICIENT PROCESS ON MODERN ACRYLIC PAINTS.

COMMON SENSE DICTATES THAT THERE IS NO RENEWING OR FIXING PAINT WITH WAX
PRESERVATION OF THE ORIGINAL FINISH IS THE  DESIGN PURPOSE OF VAPORWAX ACRYLIC PAINT CONDITIONER

NOTE:
If you used a machine buffer or an abrasive cleaner, cream, paste, sandpaper, or harsh chemical product on your headlight lens in a past effort to
restore them, Your Lens cannot be fully restored. Your U.V layer and lens surface has been damaged. The improvement will be noticeable but not 100%.

If you used a "polyurethane, acrylic or varnish sealer"  Your lens will have to be resurfaced, it CANNOT be restored.

If you are looking for a common low tech abrasive headlight cleaner, wax, scratch remover or polish,
ALR ASD & APC are NOT the products for you.

OneStep, (ALR+) AND VAPORWAX ARE NOT SCRATCH REMOVERS.

OneStep WILL NOT ALTER
THE NORMAL SURFACE OF YOUR LENS.
OneStep WILL NOT CAUSE OR REPAIR DAMAGE CAUSED BY ABRASIVE HEADLIGHT CLEANING KITS. VAPORWAX AND ALR*C WILL NOT CAUSE OR REPAIR UV DAMAGE OR DAMAGE CAUSES BY ABRASIVE POLISH, POWER BUFFERS OR HARD WAX

HOW LONG DOES PITTMAN ORIGINAL OneStep ALR LAST?

OneStep ALR DESIGN FUNCTION IS TO INSTANTLY REMOVE ACRYLIC OXIDATION FROM HEADLIGHTS, VAPORWAX APC IS DESIGNED TO PRESERVE FACTORY FINISH AND PREVENT ACRYLIC OXIDATION. One Step ALR and VaporWax APC WILL NOT EVAPORATE OR LOOSE THEIR UNIQUE ABILITY
BOTH PRODUCTS HAVE AN UNLIMITED SHELF LIFE, THEY CAN BE STORED VIRTUALLY FOREVER.


Oxidation is a naturally re-occurring event. Once you remove oxidation,  it will continue to form, the time it takes for the oxidation to return can be from
6 mths to 2 years depending the condition of the lens surface and your vehicles operating environment. The average cleaning will normally last about a year. We recommend periodic treatment of the lens with VaporWax APC 360ID to prevent oxidation from returning permanently.

The ALR/APC TSS mini is a complete deoxidizer and preventive system.

One Step ALR will effectively remove oxidation on contact and VaporWax
APC will prevent oxidation from returning while conditioning and leaving a shine on your headlights.

WE RECOMMEND THE ALR APC 360ID COMPLETE SYSTEM FOR LONG TERM MAINTENANCE.
VaporWax APC 360ID IS THE OPTIMUM ACRYLIC CONDITIONING TREATMENT AFTER DEOXIDATION. After cleaning your headlights the surface of some lens can be left in a more permeable condition exposed to re contamination.
VaporWax will condition the lens surface and create an impermeable barrier to most contaminants.

HOW LONG DOES VaporWax APC 360ID LAST?

  • VAPORWAX PROTECTIVE CONDITIONING EFFECT LASTS FOR MONTHS EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS.
  • VAPORWAX PROTECTIVE CONDITIONING EFFECT WILL LAST INDEFINITELY WHEN STORED OUT OF THE ELEMENTS.
  • VAPORWAX UNIQUE MIRROR LIKE SHINE WILL LAST  1 TO 2 MONTHS EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS BEING WASHED  ONCE A WEEK WITH CLEAR WATER.
  • VAPORWAX WILL LEAVE PAINT SHINNING LONG AFTER THE CONDITIONING EFFECT HAS WORN OFF.
  • VAPORWAX WILL NEVER DULL OR HAZE LIKE WAX NOR WILL IT CREATE DULL SPOTS OR ABRASIVE DAMAGE LIKE POLISH OR CLAY GUARANTEED.
I see VaporWax advertised for black cars, will it work on other colors?

VaporWax works on all colors, but its impact on black paint has a high visibility factor because of blacks unique ability to reflect colored light.

Which cleaner is best to prep my car before conditioning it?

Typically brand name cleaners are designed to remove that brands wax.  They are not always as effective on other waxes.
We recommend common dish washing liquid as the best all around cleaner to prep your vehicle with.
Dish washing liquid is safe to use on plastic, metal and glass.  Acrylic paint and clear coat are basically plastics.
.
Do you have to remove VaporWax after so many applications like wax?

No, Unlike wax VaporWax does not create an unsightly build up nor does it have to be removed. VaporWax will gradually wear off from natural exposure to the elements just like paint but at a faster rate. It allows the paint to keep elements that give it, its shine by vaporizing into the paint and giving up its own electrons in place of those that normal exposure to the elements take from paint. In essence it works like a sun screen for paint.

Should I wash my car before or after using OneStep ALR?

Before or after is OK, however for best results, headlight must be dry when applying One Step ALR. Wax, varnish or after market sealants will hinder th process by creating physical damage or contaminate the surface.
ALR is not designed to remove these applications from the headlight on contact.
Water should not be put immediately on the lens after applying ALR. Allow the surface ample time to dry before any additional actions.

I used a polish to clean my lens previously, will OneStep ALR still work for me?

One Step will remove oxidation in all circumstances, however
it cannot replace areas of the surface worn away or damaged by polish.

Should I use wax as a sealer on my headlights after cleaning them?

No. Wax will only melt off the headlights and create a yellowed surface worse than oxidation.
Heat is a problem for all after market sealers. We recommend using VaporWax APC as a preservative on your headlights. It will keep a shine and
resist the return of oxidation.

I recently restored my headlights with OneStep ALR. They look much better now but not like new  should I reapply One Step?  

No. OneStep will remove ALL oxidation during the first application,
the newly exposed surface will vary with each lens. If it is not worn and there is no damage, the lens will look like new at the first application, if the
surface is worn or damaged, it will show an improvement but cannot look new with obvious physical wear. Never apply more than one drop at a
time. More is not better. Lens saturation can cause a clouding effect. The clouding can be removed with a correct reapplication of One Step.

I have very minor scratches on my headlights will ALR fill them?

No. ALR is not a common filler or sealer. It is an Acrylic Deoxidizer, unique in the market today


I cleaned my lens with an abrasive headlight kit but it's still yellow. Will OneStep help?

No. When your lens turn yellow it is because the UV layer has been removed and the sun has caused the plastic lens to yellow. This yellow is permanent it is not oxidation.


The directions say use one drop. How can one drop cover an entire headlight wouldn't it be better to start with much more?

No. When you don't follow instructions you will not get the desired results. One Step reacts at the molecular level. It is not a soap that should be lathered on.  In most cases one drop on a paper towel is all that is needed to deoxidize the headlights. Using more or cloth towel is not only wasteful but it can produce a whitish film on the headlights once the excess formula drys. A correct reapplication will remove this film.

Oxidation seems to have formed in layers and patches on my headlights will OneStep fix this?

No. Oxidation does not form in layers or patches. Oxidation forms evenly as a thin film which usually starts at the top of the lens. The layers and patches you speak of is actually the damaged UV layer, caused in most cases by an abrasive headlight cleaner like those sold in most American automotive stores.

The oxidation seems to have formed on the inside of my headlight will OneStep ALR help?

No. Oxidation does not form on the inside of your headlight. You may have debris from a blown bulb or moisture but you will not see oxidation
form there. Oxidation can only form on the outside of the lens surface.


I read in a car care forum that washing with soap and water is all headlights need to remain clear. Can this be true?

Common sense dictates that if that was true oxidation would not be a problem. That suggest that people somehow wash their cars without washing
the headlights.

There are several headlight kits on the market whats the difference between them?

Very little. Sandpaper is sandpaper no matter which caveman you buy it from. It all has a non reversible destructive effect on the headlight lens
surface and all low tech abrasive sandpaper kits and polish require an excessive amount of work. One difference is some offer sealers which are a
necessary visual component once you cloud the lens with scratches from abrasive systems.


I read in some car forum to use sandpaper grit  in 800, 1000, 1500, 2000 and finish off with polish is the only way to remove oxidation.

You will remove a lot more than oxidation using that out dated method and you will create a lot of work and mess, You will destroy the UV protective surface of your headlights. If your intention is to resurface then yes you will use abrasive polish and power tools. If your intention is to remove oxidation the last thing you want to put on your expensive headlights is cheap sandpaper wet or dry no matter what grit.

The yellow oxidation is still on my headlight after deoxidizing WHY?

Oxidation does not cause the lens to turn yellow.
Yellowing is caused by Ultra Violet rays from the sun. With the UV layer intact the rays are effectively blocked from reaching the lens. The white oxidation which forms on top of the UV layer will turn yellow and brown. This does not effect the lens below. However once this UV layer is severely damaged or removed the UV rays can reach the lens and cause it to turn yellow. When this happens there is no recovery. The yellow will permeate the lens. This yellowing is permanent.
