    I was thinking asking just normal body shops but round my end they are all too busy to do headlights for peanuts when they have 1000's pounds worth of insurance repairs in! Surely theres a local lad to help

    NOPE, if I put sandpaper anywhere near my headlights, the only thing they would resemble afterwards would be "Sandpapered Headlamps"

    BUT, I'm booked into "Hull" so gotta get at least the lamps done before then

    Mate, I'm just a "scaredy cat" with trying "new stuff" like this. I'm a massive fan of "meets" where you can watch your mates who know what they are doing, show you how to do it. From what I've seen at meets so far, there are some things I am more than happy to take on now, BUT there are also, almost "frightening", things I have seen that NO WAY would I want to tackle unless I was doing it for a living 7 days a week and knew "how to" ... @Critch makes a clutch replacement look like "plain sailing" LOL... Would I do it ? NO WAY !
    Would love to see how the headlight thing is done, far too many guys on here take their unknown skills for granted, and don't appreciate the lack of knowledge the mainstream members have on these things
