    Well I have to admit I'm ok cleaning and polishing paintwork on my cars, but never had a go with a headlamp restoration kit. So the wifes VW Jetta headlamp lenses were looking pretty yellow / cloudy, only one thing for it... pat someone to do it ... nah sod that I'll have a go.

    Bought a 3M headlamp restoration kit and got the cordless drill out, what could go wrong. Thankfully for once nothing apart from picture order

    So heres the pictures of my efforts... enjoy!1. Before.jpg7. 2nd Polish.jpg2. Stage 1 Sanding.jpg3. Stage 1 Both done.jpg4. Stage 2 fine sanding.jpg5. Fine sanding both done.jpg6. 1st polish.jpg8. Like New.jpg9. Like new 2.jpg

    Easiest way is 2000 grit sandpaper then use buffer with polising compound.
