Great DIY I think im going to be doing my door handles soon, while were on the polishing subject does your mothers polish ever turn to a liquid on you? The one in the little can thats used for polishing metal always seems to go watery on me I think it might be cuz im in phoenix.

I finally decided to get some pics of the finished product. I'm not sure if u can tell the difference in the two, but of course, the first pic is the before pic, and the second one is the after pic. Before, the headlight lens looked cloudy and hazy. Now, it's hella clear . Thx alot for the tips and pointers mane

if they are plastic (like the one pieces). the OEM headlights are glass.

don't sand unless you have too (deep scratches and deep nicks). you can just use the plastic polish. i recomend a buffing attachment on a drill to cut out a lot of hand buffing. later.

Alright Mr Clean.
Every one knows you are the king of polishing plastic. So I'm Guessing your whole interior is real clean. I was wondering if you had tips on cleaning up the vinyl (sp) parts of the interior? Ie...Dash pad and door panels...
Thanks
Jason

steelbluesleepR seems to have made some friends!
since you cant use the plastic polish on the glas head lights, what do u use? i ground down the "bumps" on the top of the oem's wth a dremel, which left it smooth, but grey, opaque glass. what should i do?
