If you've got 20 bucks and about an hour and a half, you too can have your headlights like-new!:phillyb:
It was fun (mainly cause Dippette and the little Dipperino are out of my hair for the weekend) and I was able to take my time.

Boils down to 3 different (wet) sandpaper rubs, 400, 1000 and 2000 grit and a polish, and a UV clearcoat. And some elbow grease!

Thanks!

Needless to say, this only applies to acrylics.

I dunno, that pic was taken when I was out Miata hunting and came across it in the wild... Has sentimental value ;)

Better than one of the "kits" that I bought.

FWIW, Consumer Reports rated the Sylvania kit a tad bit better than the 3M resto kit.

Disclosure: I also took their advice on washer and dryer and haven't regretted it, yet, heh.

Basic rubbing compound works just as good as well :)
