misty headlights

had a bit of fun today as the honda headlights over time went misty so bad you could not see the bulb
any way got out the 1200 wet/dry rubbed them down then a t-cut and finally toothpaste they now look like new
so anyone having the same problem have a look on youtube to see what can be done before you go off buying new headlights
sorry i did not do a before and after picture but there are so many pictures and videos out there to help you any way like this

this one is just toothpaste
