Well, this is the first thing I've done for the car in a good while. Sorry for the dirty car, just have had no time to give her a bath.
1. I used 1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper to wet sand the heck out of the lights.
2. I used Plastic X to polish the headlights along with a buffer on the end of my drill.
3. Joey modded to GLi style

Re: Just refinished the headlights! (ProKae)

I will let you know ahead of time that I spent a good 5 hours on the headlights today. I wet sanded, buffed, buffed, and buffed some more.

Oh jeez, I thought it would take less time than that. xP

I was also Joey modding them too... so I guess 5 hours isn't that accurate.
