Sam's Club Headlight Restoration

Hi all. I've been looking at a more permanent solution to address my cloudy, yellow headlights. I've been restoring them every so often, yet they return to their previous state eventually. I'm floating around the idea of getting them restored at Sam's Club for $40, then applying something similar to this after: https://www.autogeek.net/optimum-opt...t-coating.html

Does anyone have any experience with Sam's Club's headlight restoration service? Also, is the headlight coating as effective as the company claims it to be?

Thanks

my dad had it done to his 10+ year old toyota avalon. worth it, especially considering the warranty.

​​​​​​Nice, good to hear. I didn't realize there was a warranty included with it. Seems like a good value for 40 bucks or so.

I'm not sure, but I'd assume so. I don't think you can buy anything there without a membership (never tried though).

You could ask someone with membership to buy you a cash card, and use that. Better check first that you can use a cash card for this service.

IIRC the warranty is 5 years on this service. Again, check for yourself.

Got my headlights restored and they look really good. It's a better restoration job than I've ever done.

Now I just have to wait a week to wash it while the clear coat dries. We'll see how it holds up!

I saw this offering at Sams and was curious about it. Do you have before and after pics?

That's the only before pic I could find. They weren't terribly bad, but the yellow hue bugged me most.

I took this pic a few weeks ago - they're still holding up pretty well. I scuffed the clear coat a bit on my driver's side, so I may take it in again at some point to get it redone.

obsidian, that looks great, man. I tried buffing out the yellow hue, but it seems to always come back after a few months or so.
may need to give this service a try.
