So I've neglected my car for a while. A long while. With the SoCal meet coming up I figured I might as well give her some TLC...starting with the headlights.

Before:

Yikes!!

What I used:

Thx Gus! :tu:

After:

Bling, bling!!

The results speak for themselves. My only complaint is that they're a bit stingy with the grit paper. I knew this beforehand so I stopped by AutoZone. No biggie. This stuff works great! No powertools needed and it comes with sealant. I used the "Mother's" kit in the past and it was just as effective but I never sealed them and it was only a matter of time before they got cloudy again.

Eventually I'll get around to doing the same to this bad boy:

Yup...they are what u think they are. :king:
They've been sitting in my garage for almost a year!! :tomato:
Maybe I'll throw them on next year haha...

Thx guys!

@McCoy...the instructions are pretty straight forward and simple. This video pretty much sums it up perfectly:

Huge improvement!! :)
Hey rick, thanks for posting this up. Can't wait to get this in the mail.
Ur gonna love the results. Take before/after pics. And wash/dry ur car prior to applying. I wanted to wash my dirty ass car right after I finished the headlights but then I read that I had to wait 24 hours. :/
i wiLL keep this in mind if i ever need to do this. thanks for the post. Looks great.!
Thx! :tu:

well, i finally tried the kit today. it wasn't as good as i thought it was going to be but in retrospect, i think it has more to do with me than the kit... i may have another go at it a few months later to get it showroom perfect... i think it really comes down to the sanding. get the sanding right and it'll look great.

all around, great kit, cheap, and works pretty well.

^^^ now that u know what grit paper u need make sure u have some extra handy for next time bcuz just like I mentioned in the OP, the kit provides only a few small pieces to work with and I found it to not be enough.

It's best to have a few larger pieces folded up and TAKE UR TIME with all the steps for optimal results.

My headlights look as clear today as the day I used this kit in November.
