    Smile Punto Headlight Restoration

    Decided to attack the headlights on the wifes Mk2 Punto today. They were showing pretty bad pitting and spiders webbing etc.

    Used 1200 and 2000 grit wet sand paper, Megs #82 and #83 Mirror glaze on a cutting pad with a rotary polisher.


    What I started with.






    All sanded up



    Finished article

    Aye, but the bumper is 10x harder to take off compared to the Vectra's.
