Just buy the 3M kit, and take your time with it. The more time you spend on each step, the better your final results.

Headlight lenses have a UV protection layer on them. If you buff them it will come out. I would just buy new ones from khoalty

You can put a UV coating back on, too. Most decent kits even include it.
