    Trim : Leather



    Default Took the wet and dry to my headlights today

    Ive got an 05 vec and the headlights were looking bad i believe its uv light that causes this and its like plastic rust lol , so i got some 2500 wet and dry and went to work it takes a while but use plenty water and rub away. then got a polisher out and applied some g3 compound then g10 which is a fine one then a good wax and after 3 hrs work im very pleased with the outcome.Sorry no pics though been out for a drive and with the new hids in its a pleasure to drive now . So for anyone who's headlamps are looking a bit iffy get the wet and dry out. Ha.

    Makes all the difference, I was lucky that another member did this for me at a meet
