    Default My new cheap grill and headlights.

    I picked up this fk automotive grill of eBay for 25 pound delivered. I then got 2 irmscher badged for 8 pound delivered. Put the two together and a nice replica irmscher grill for 33 all in. Bit cold today but could not wait.

    I also got some sri headlights if eBay for a bargain price of 29 pound delivered. I have used wet and dry and some polish and they have came out pretty good. There Is a before and after pic. I will be putting the headlights on 2 mo no matter what the weather. Also some 16 mm hubcentric spacers at the same time which I purchased.

    All I had was a pad that went into a drill. I used some compound. Polish and megs plast x. No access to a machine polisher unfortunately. Will give them another going over 2mo before fitting. The first pic is how they was. 2nd how they are now. All the fading and oxide marking is gone. Still need a but more buffing.

    I got meguires plast x which is especially for plastics and headlights. Tbh I didn't find it any different from a normal car polish which is suitable for any colour. I used megs car polish. Maybe someone with more knowledge can give you better advice.

    That's probably the same grill I got, although Im sure I got mine for around £19 direct.

    I had one ordered from them direct in January. By march nothing so I canceled it. Few extra quid but got it 2 days later after I won it from eBay. Surprised how good the grill is.
