Headlight Lenses.

10 posts in this topic

My headlight lenses are badly scratched. Can anyone suggest a product to remove most of the scratches? I have tried a scratch removal paste type of thing that I have used on the paintwork but it has no effect on the plastic lenses. Is there a specific product on the market for this purpose?

I'm just about to list my set of 2010 genuine focus headlights removed from my focus last year because I wanted black units and the ones I have are chrome units no scratches or anything,

I'm open to offers if our interested,

Not trying to force sell them just thought I'd give them a mention

Thanks for the offer Lenny. I also have the chrome headlights but given the chance I would also change them for the black ones. My Focus is sea grey and I think the black one would look better. My neighbour has a Zetec S the same colour as mine but has the black lights. Looks a lot better than the chrome ones.

Thanks for that Sal. Had a quick look earlier and got a few ideas. Will look into it in more depth later. There looks as if there are a great number of products on the market that would do the job.
