What's a good long lasting plastic headlight lens restore 'system' I can get from the local car store?

Also, what's the 2 or 3 best windshield wipers out there?

My stepson does very high end auto restoration. He has done our headlights for us on all our vehicles. He uses 2000 grit wet sandpaper rather than one of the kits.

Not all headlights can be revived. If they are too far gone you will have to replace the lenses. We did that on my F250.

+1 on the sandpaper. Once you start using a polish from a kit, you will be using it often.

Wrt to the wiper blade, depends on amount of sun (ultraviolet light) and temperature variance.

Wiper blades with silicon base are my preferred and I replace about every 18 months.
