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.
Anyone have any experience on adjusting raceland coilovers? I am currently running 17" wheels and I'm pretty low, trying to get to remove the wheel gap completely. I just ordered a new set or rims and tires as well, I'm going back to factory 15" but I'll be running 8" wide. I'll include pics of...

I want to get a bigger engine in my 2001 2.0 ztec and I want to know what’s possible. I’ve heard small block Chevy engines are nice and I’ve heard that the fusion 2.2 and 2.5 are a hassle. What’s an easy swap I can do?
Is there a 6 speed transmission I can put in it?
Hi everyone! Before I launch into my problem, some backstory:
My car is a 2003 ford focus see wagon with the 2.0zetec and an auto. A while ago, my car had great difficulty starting. This "while" ended up with my car not being able to start at all at a point, despite the efforts of several...
I have a 2004 focus 2.0 zetec with the 4speed auto and 300,500km. I was driving my focus a few days ago, and the transmission just gave up in the middle of traffic. I had almost came to a stop at a light when it changed to green, I was going about 10-20 km/h and pushed down on the gas to...
