    Need Some New Headlights...........

    OK.......so after years of car washes and their horrible spray waxes, my headlights have finally started to dull up and turn yellow. Looking to get some new headlights, I would prefer them looking as close to stock as possible, but I don't want anything super cheaply made either. Just wondering what kind of experiences everyone's had with aftermarket headlights, and if there are any that you'd recommend.

    +1 if u want stock look, 3m makes a nice restore kit, with a drill sanding attachment for $25. Works great and I did 3 cars with the 1 kit and they look brand new. Takes about an hour to do 2 headlights.

    Can't argue with stock headlights, but there are some great aftermarket ones out there that have a mostly stock appearance but a much sharper, cleaner look IMO. Either way, the car's looking good man! Would love to see some bigger photos.

    Thanks for showing the car some love. Just picked up the 3M restore kit tonight, hopefully I'll get to try that soon.......car is soo clean, and those headlights so yellow. lol

    I'll get around to adding more pictures soon.....

    Don't forget to put some sort of synthetic wax on them or they will yellow much faster since the coating is now gone. You also want to apply it every time you wax the car. Or pick up some Meguiar's headlight protectant from your local walmart and use it every 6-8 weeks.

    Or get the 3M protective film that you can put on them.

    X-pel does make a film already cut for the camaro headlights. I have it on my daily driver and it keeps the lights from turning yellow.
