    I've got headlights that look a bit like yours used to

    What does the 3M kit consist of and how do you get the results you have ? I mean do you also need special electric polishers and other stuff ?

    It's ok, I found it Google, eBay & YouTube are my friends

    But it doesn't tell me how long it takes for each headlamp. Is it a morning job to do 2 lamps , or is it a day long exercise ?

    took me just over the hour to do both, prob hour and a half for fags and tea breaks lol

    keep the drill moving, but you can go fairly slowly accross. dont be afraid to use a bit of pressure and the edge of the discs for stubborn bits, just dont stop in one place. after the second stage it looks like you'll never recover it, but the 3000 pad works wonders and the rubbing compound and sponge really works well. i was really nervous about doing it, but im so glad i did.

    also, stage one you get 6 discs, use 3 on each, and actually use them all. same with stage 2, 4 discs so 2 on each, its well worth it
