My gramp asked me if there was a way to clean up his headlights...

well i decided to test the process out on mine first and i'm amazed at how well it works. Looks like my headlights are brand new!

Nice work Ian, they came out great!

Thanks for the tip, Ian. I'll have to remember this, I've gone the 2000 grit route and it was pretty tedious.

Looks perfect! You can wet sand, buff and polish as well. Just keep in mind that you cant do it to many times. This something I need to do as well. Thanks bud!

much better! but i want to know how they can get that bad in the first place? lol :shrug:

ya before this i tried wet sanding and it left grit marks, which i never really buffed out thats why they looked bad, may have had a little road salt but not sure either way you get the end result which looks a hell of alot better lol

I've tried using Sylvania kit with success. It comes with clearcoat for UV protection.
