I picked up some 02-05 (used) headlights to upgrade my 01. I also bought a heavy duty headlight restoration kit since they were bought and shipped sight unseen. What the wrecking yard described as "fair" lens, I would say is good to very good.
So my question is, the kit I bought says to start wet sanding with the supplied 800 then 1200 then 2000 grit paper. I think I can start at the 1200 or 2000 then go on to the polishing paste. As a matter of fact, the one on the bottom I may just hit with the paste and no sanding.
But, I've never done headlights before. So those who have, what are your thoughts? And thank you in advance 🙂
Whatever you do be consistent with both - do the same to both of them, regardless of their condition.
What kit did you buy? The 3M kits are the best, in my experience. I just used one on my 2002 ML500 and the lenses on it were pretty bad. The climate here in Florida really takes a toll on plastics.
