Re: Headlight plastic

The lamps come with a lacquer as new..
Unless your a SMART agent like Paul^ anything involving spraying can be tricky.

The lacquer is gone now with scratches and mild abrasives.I find Brasso/Silvo and jewellers rouge the best.
Try a hard car polish like simoniz or similar,maybe test it on a small area for a few weeks first to ensure you dont get any discolouration.
Then there are products like aquawax,polish while washing and use a chamois ,might be good also.

A floor polish.while it might work isnt designed for outdoor use or for use on clear plastic lenses.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
