Evening all.

 

Had a look at the headlights on my car. As per the clio my wife had, the lenses have started to slightly dull. 

 

Cure - Solvol-Autosol metal polish. This is a light abrasive and cleans them right up.( If heavier dulling just add a green scrubber used to wash the dishes.) Once done, polish with ordinary car polish. 

 

regards

 

MM

 

PS, if on a budget, try a scubber with toothpolish. Seriously. lol

You can also get a 3M headlight restoration kit, it's about £13 and you attach these parts to a drill and buff / sand it all out, they come back mint after a few hours of labouring away.

Meguiars do a small kit also , don't know if it's the same with the 3m stuff but the Meguiars is a champ at putting black plastic faded trim "back to black"

Wire wool is very good for cleaning any kind of pure glass ( not coated glass or treated in any way )
