Title: Headlamp polishing
Post by: Andy on June 08, 2010, 05:06:34 PM
The plastic covers over the headlamps on my truck are really clouded after 11 years of road
crud.
 
I've got some Meguires PlastiX and thought I'd use that to buff them out. Should I just use the Meguires, or sand them with some 1500 or finer paper first before buffing?

I would think the 1500 might be a good idea.  Depending on how bad they are.  Tray a small spot with the McQuires first though.  Why work harder than you have too.

A guy down here "restores" yellowed headlights.
Yep, you're right, guys.

i use a product called blue magic it was cheap and i have only had to sand 1 pair of headlights. Most come out fine with no sanding.

I have a polish at home (don't remember the name) that I use on the lamps of the Stratus.  It makes them look very clear for about a month.  I was wondering why the bottle was so large?

That's why you sand them.  It lasts longer

Instructions on the bottle don't say anything about sanding, so I didn't.
