    Got a few jobs sorted today.

    First job was to whip the bumper off and fix my headlight wash covers, had them apart the other week when I fixed my screen wash and they haven't sat right since but its all sorted now.

    Next up was two new bulbs, thought it would be easier to fit them when I could pull the headlights out easily.

    Decided it would also be a good time to have a crack at cleaning up my headlights, they have come up quite well, sorry the pics are not the best....

    Looks really really good. May I ask what you used and how you did it? I would love for mine to look that shiny.

    I used 1500 wet and dry to start with, then polished the lights with Menzerna Super Finish (I think) on an orange Menzerna pad using my Das-6.

    Took about 10 minutes per side.

    There not perfect but a damn sight better than before !

    No really wanting to sell but im finding im just doing so many miles now.

    Put it up for what I would be willing take, open to offers but not going to be dropping the asking price to shift it.
