though the restore kits are nice, be careful when using a drill as it could cause you to go too much and burn the plastic of the lights. i recommend sticking to man power alone. and using a bunch of grits, going as high up as you can grit wise. (i ended at 2500 but would go up to 5000 if i could find it). then use a plastic specific polish, preferably one with a UV protector so you don't end up re doing your work again in 3 weeks after it's been in the elements again. (hint hint, mother's power plastic 4 lights)

Well I just spent the past hour sanding the lights. I started with 400 then went to 600 then 1500. I finished with meguiers plastX. It still looks like crap. No use posting pics because it looks the exact same. I am starting to lean towards ebay HIDs. These Mach lights might be the Mercedes of lights but they are currently like a 1986 drug dealers merc.

I'm thinking about doing 600k in highs/lows/fogs

On a different note. Is there a difference between a stock focus and an Svt's starter?

I have an SVT starter if you need one. Also, if you want your lights to be mint, send them my way. Actually pm me and we can work something out. Please don't put eBay headlights in place of Machs.

Black makes wheels disappear, furthermore if you make a nice set of wheels black - it looks like crap. SVT wheels are nice wheels, so please don't make them disappear.
