    Default Calipers and headlight restore.

    Well finally got round to painting my calipers.





    And used a buffing wheel and compound to restore my sun damaged headlights. I'll never recommend an off the shelf head light restoring kit to anyone after what permatex did to the plastic....

    Basic cutting compound and an electric buff.

    Unfortunatly the results were short lived. About 8 weeks later the lights were cloudy again.

    I ended up buying some good looking lights off a member here
