I accidently let it sit for like 2 min(kids).I think with all the sanding and trying to buff it out I may have left grooves and crators on the lamp.Plus I see a small collection of moister inside from the spray bottle now.Guess I need a new lamp now.Anyone have any sitting around??
Don't give up on your headlights just yet!!!
Take some rubbing alcohol and wet a rag and remove your old compound, then keep cleaning at the lights until you don't get any discoloration on your clean rag, then get some PLASTIC POLISH--I found some Flitz brand stuff in my local hardware-says its for plastic, fiberglas, ect, take it and rub pretty hard by hand side to side only, do not rub in a circular motion like wax, don't let the Polish dry but take it off by buffing with a micro fiber cloth, you might have to repete the process, but be patient, the results will be worth it, then go over the lights about every other time you wash it for a few months and you should have pretty nice looking lights!
I used the mothers it worked pretty good but I bought a new set before the accident then bought one light after the accident so far so good for the price it was worth it to go new but..
I was going to experiment with the old headlights I have ... when I had my subaru I heated up the lights in the oven (LOWEST HEAT) pulled them apart , cleaned them up then resiliconed them didnt come out too bad
Well I whould rather buy new lamps than buy used pre cleaned lamps from mike.If I am not cleaning them myself than I dont want anyone I dont know to do it.(No offense).I'll just go through parts channel.Found one in my area about 10 minutes north of me.Then I'll continue to sand and try to save my old lamp and maybe get it so damn clean I can sell them or something.I think it is time for new ones anyway.
