    After lazing about so far this week on my week off I decided today was the day I did something productive! Ish...

    So I got my Turtle Wax headlight restoration kit out, and some 2000 grit wet and dry from eBay and had at it.

    These are my results...

    I'm much happier now. But I think the N/S light was worse for wear in the beginning so I haven't quite equalled it out...

    May have another attempt at it again sometime with the lowest grit finishing pad I can find.

    Enjoy!

    I recommend getting a few sheets of 2000 grit to use with the lubrication spray before using pad 3 and 4 to finish them off.

    But pretty happy with it for the two bottles and the uv wipe at least :)

    Anyone know where I can get a bottle of the uv protection spray?

    Clean your headlamp lenses with goog old fashioned toothpaste and bi carb . Works a treat . Wet the lense first and have the toothpaste on a damp cloth with added power of the bi carb . Work it into the lense in circular motion . Keep at it until you are sweating and some more wasp it off . Job done . Try it before you buy expensive kits .
