    headlight restoration

    so like alot of you i had the dreaded yellow head lights so i tried three or four diffrent kits and not one came close so i tried the 3m kit and let me tell you night and day diffrence this kit actualy made sense 500 grit 800 grit sand paper disk cleaned all defects and yellowing and then the second part was all the other kits just a abrasive pad to polish and then buffing compound i highly recomend this kit to everyone best 20 dollars ive ever spent and you can polish all other lenses

    A friend told me he used tooth paste. I guess cuz it is somewhat gritty.

    ...tho I didn't ask if it was tarter control or extra whitening!
