Give it a good coat of sealant and wax and that'll help keep them in good condition too. Whenever I wax my car I just run over the headlights and taillights with the PC too. Finishing touch.
Ever since I bought the car, which was in August of 2009.
During the 400-grit, there was a LOT of yellow dust flying out from underneath the sander. Lol. So there was definitely a lot of it caked on there. Same with the fogs, but since my headlights were my main concern, and I only had one kit, I wanted to make sure I had enough to get the headlights done. Fogs were just extra.
And there's actually more than enough in the kit to do both headlights and both fogs. I ended up with three 400-grit pads left, two 800-grits, and the one 3000-grit pad is still better than 60% I'd say. Plus the compound pad, which I don't think will really ever wear out. Not for a while at least.
You just have to make sure you hit them with the 400-grit until ALL yellow dusts stops. And keep watching the lens. If you see spots that still have the haze to them, keep at it. And it doesn't look like much until after the compound and a wash. That's really what does it. When I got done with the 3000-grit I wasn't very impressed. But then I hit it with the compound, then hit it with the 3000-grit again, and then the compound again, and then I washed it. After I dried all the lenses with a towel (after the wash) I stood back and was like "Wow.."
Another tip, when using the sanding pads, make sure to periodically wipe off both the pads and the lenses to help the pads last longer. Also, wiping off the lenses will give you a better idea of what areas need to get hit again.
i have had decent luck with the 3m kit it lasted a little while for me and i kept up on waxing them it just didn't do the trick for me. I tried the sylvania kit and i was more than impressed with that kit. its all done by hand but the last step they give you a UV Clear Coat type of stuff you apply to the lense and it adds another layer of protection making the like new again. It was about the same price as the 3m kit just no fancy buffing pad and disc holder.
104,000 miles on it.
I added a switch above the cigarette lighter to turn it off when I get out of the car, and replaced the cigarette lighter because it didn’t work.
What do I do now? I’m assuming I need to replace the stock plugs, I’m planning on doing it Friday and replacing them with...
Hey guys, I've got a little issue with the blower motor in my zx3 hatch. I've replaced the blower motor resistor and I'm still popping my fuse in the box under the hood. The car did sit for about 2 months and the blower had worked before it was parked. I'm stumped. Could the blower motor itself...
I just bought a 2007 Ford Focus SE sedan for 3000$. The badge on the trunk and the dealer said SE on it, but it has fog lights, a tachometer, a 6CD headunit, an adjustable height steering wheel, etc. All stuff ive read is on the SES. Now I’m unsure of whether or not I have an SE or SES, can...
Two months ago I replace the clutch, slave cylinder, and flywheel on my 02 zx5. Everything was going fine after a minor setback with the shifter cables. Last Thursday I replaced the leaky master cylinder and all hell broke loose. While bleeding the clutch after the install the entire metal...
