Some one needs to a hold of the enhancers so i can see what this looks like. Havent been able to find many pictures since this products is new and not widely available yet.

This is apparently the shine/glossifier version


Then i wonder what the metallic enhancers look like too and then the combinations with white/shine or white/metalic (probably not the gold metallic)
rambleon84 is online now

Decided to use plasti-dip to paint my jetta's headlight housings.









They need a little restoration love which will happen this week. Then I'll most likely be installing them this weekend.

lol... since you are the guinea pig,...
can you drive all night to test it?... lol
for a while i was thinking of plastidippin my housing but ended up using high heat black paint... i didnt like the glossy look too much... rather have the flat black look... sooo...
if it works on your headlights... its a go for me to re do mine...
