    Default Plastic headlight lens.

    Noticed that the lenses on my headlights were looking hazey and badly pitted from stone impacts, so tried the Meg's PlastX polish to reduce the damage on them using my Porter Cable polisher (on speed setting 5) and a Meg's cutting pad. Result is good, but could be better. Not going to wet sand them as they're not that far gone ..... YET !

    The other product that works well is Fenwicks Plastic caravan window cleaner/scratch remover. Not very expensive and comes in a small yellow tube - look in your nearest camping/caravan dealer accessory shop.

    I used the Megs PlastX because it quickly breaks down into fine polishing particles, thus slightly kinder to the plastic surface.
    They told us this when we went to Meg's HQ in Northamptonshire for product demo's.
