    ...this thing really works! :)

    Did my headlights on my F-250,did my dad's F-350 before we left for Pomona and they both came out great...much brighter at night!

    I'll be doing my neighbors Tahoe later today,I told her I would...and she has an older Neon with headlights that are milky white! :screwup:

    That is all...:crazy:

    Your neighbor must be good looking if you're offering to polishing her headlights.

    HAHAHAHA, I loved that one.

    What all do you use with it. I need to polish my wifes headlights, (probably not as fun as polishing my neighbors), hers headlights are getting pretty bad. She bought one of those kits once and it didn't work.

    Besides the obvious bewbie jokes, it really helps to scrub the oxidation off with 1,000 grit wetsand before you polish.
    I usually sand really good with 1,000 and use a paint polishing compound with a wool padded buffer.

    ive heard that it comes back pretty fast ( again heard ). the protective coat is what hazes and that is what you remove to clear them up . without it they fog back up pretty quick . its better than nothing and time will tell .

    When that's happened, I've re done the headlight and coated them with a 50/50 mixture of spar urethane and mineral spirits. I've had it last up to a year.

    Meguiars makes a headlight sealant. I haven't tried it yet.

    On my newer vehicles I use whatever wax or sealant I use on the paint, on the headlights also.

    I just use goof-off and a lint-free rag. Nice and clear in 10 seconds.
