    Default Headlight refurb!

    Had a go at doing my headlights today as per the 'how 2', I had previously had a go with what cleaning products i had in the garage & they looked OK but after some time they just went back to how they were, Ive put a couple of pics on the post that's in the styling section Well Pleased!.

    That looks awesome and I really need to do this on my headlights... they look shocking and i'm not gonna get the full effect with the new Ring XenonMax bulbs ive ordered!

    Do I need to buy anything else to get them refurbed or is it all done using that 3M Kit?

    Cheers

    Lew

    Its always been a bit daunting having to buy all the little bits and the different grades of wet and dry... was looking to be very expensive just to refurb... and judging from your pictures... the results look amazing!

    I'll certainly be doing this at some point this week or at the weekend :-)

    Vehicle : vectra 1.9 cdti

    Trim : sri

    Engine : 120 8v

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 84000

    Default

    As a point to note for anyone,I may be able to sort out a bit of wet and dry paper,plus maybe small pots of cutting compound.can't do the mop bit,though tbh, a bit of elbow grease is all that's needed.I did a bike headlight that had deep scratches and sanded it back before getting the shine back,it was like new.
