Question

What tools do you guys use to polish? I got a cordless rotary and cordless drill.
I want to polish my tail lights too but do I need to remove them? Is there some thing I could get to coat after polishing so I don't have to do it again from the weather attack?
Thanks.

When I polished my tail lights, I just applied the polish to a clean microfiber towel and then polished them. You don't need to remove the tail lights, I just masked off the paint around it so I won't damage it.

That exactly what u wanna use. Maybe a 2000 grit sand first. That took out all the rock chips and made them really smooth and shiny. U can do the inside too. Makes them more clear.

I can't say for headlights. I used 220 then went higher to 2000 when I did my fogs

Is it that much work? I spent 2 hours with the mag polish then another hour with plastix on 1 ac knob. When I started, after just a quick rub with mag polish, they were black, but not jewel like. Held to a light and you could see the grain. Could I cut with sand paper to save some time

That should be no problem to use. Just try/practice on some unused plastic or unseen area first before u work on the actual part.
