Re: Headlight plastic

A more 'permanent' solution would be to wet sand and re-lacquer. Had this done on my brother's car - even gets rid of any light stone chips

Re: Headlight plastic

Quickest easiest way would be to use a clay bar! If you don't know what it is google car detailing clay bar.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

Re: Headlight plastic

I dont know if you have solved the problem yet or not. But recently I had to remove a nasty big and deep scuff on a headlamp lens for on a friends car and used a product from eBay for restoring headlamps. Used it as per the instructions given by the seller and it worked amazingly. The lens was really badly scuffed that I was told by many that it wont come out 100%. But after a few applications of this product, it has become 100% restored.

The link for the product is here

Hope this helps.

Re: Headlight plastic

I did my headlights on Saturday. Wet and dry 1200 followed by 2000 then a go over with electric polisher and rubbing compound, I'm really happy with the results for an hour or so work.

Re: Headlight plastic

I have this problem on my Mk 1 Megane.
What laquer is recommended for this?
Thanks in anticipation.
