|Dave@TLC||Great write up! I would add that it is a good idea to add a good quality sealant or coating to the headlights once they are corrected. This will help prevent them from fogging back up too quickly.|

If you don't have the cutting compound, you can try toothpaste! Just did it to my gf's Pt Cruiser, and damn, they look brand new! Just another input is all

|cdbertrand||Definetly trying this soon. What exact product am I to coat the lens with after this step?|

If you start with a more aggressive abrasive, it goes a whole lot faster.
I wet sand starting with 1000 grit, then 1500, then 2000.....then a liquid or paste as shown in the pics above.

That is a great write up! I will have to do this to my car. They aren't terrible but I am sure it is easier to do when there is less damage.
My only question is, will doing this remove the "tint" from the SVT headlights? I dunno if that is a coating on the lens or if it is part of the plastic.

|1sloho||also, suggest putting some kind of protectant over the headlights or, they will just haze back over. something like lamin-x or what i did, use 50/50 mix of spar urethane and mineral spirits and put several coats over the housing.|
