    Hi there, My Car just flew through through its MOT but had an advisory about the headlight as its faded somewhat,

    It has bugged me for sometime, but have never got around to sorting it,

    I now want to sort it out, as it lets the look of the car down+ now I have had an advisory about it,

    What is the best method to do this?, I have no access to a machine polisher,

    I have heard t cut? then polish after?

    Cheers,

    My best advice would be to get an old headlight from a scrap yard and practice on that first. I've done so many headlight now I could blab on but Detailing World has to be the best for Info. Then practice before you tackle your pride and joy.
    We don't want you going hammer and nail and burning through your paint on your bonnet and bumper. God knows, hands up I did it !!!! Years ago now but lesson learned. Thankfully it was my own car. Hence I say practice and also
    A few layers of 3M blue tape around your lights on the paint and rubber sourounding your headlight is highly recommended. Also open your bonnet. Will give you more space to work with.

    Hope this helps.
