Normally their are several at the general auto part stores. I have used two kits on vehicles and never had a problem or a sore arm.

I just tried the Mother's kit with the Powerball (drill attachment) on my wife's Jetta. Awesome. $20 at O'Reilly.

They were in terrible shape, and really most of the restoration came from the sanding pads (4 different grits, 2 per pad) rather than the drill attachment. It is basically wet sanding by hand, and the powerball is for polishing afterward.

This is the kit:

I have used this one and it works great, all I've put it on with is a microfiber towel.

They came out great! I'm going to have to keep this product in mind if my headlights ever need it done.
