    I suppose the sanding step kind of nullifies this possibly..?

    Washing oxidized headlights with Comet will chew or abrade "some" of the dead, oxidized plastic off but you're correct - if you're already planning on sanding them then washing first with Comet would be redundant.

    Do you use it only on white or would you use it on other colors as well. I'm sure the abrasion would be pretty frightening to see on a darker color...even if you know it will be polished out.

    Good questions. "Yes" I have used it on colored cars but ALL were SINGLE STAGE. It's important that everyone understands this.

    Here's my article on this topic.

    That is the conventional wisdom and consensus. I never tell anyone else to do this, but it works for me. Here's my article on this topic,

    More...


    I "think" I'm the first guy to ever teach and document the Comet Technique in a formal detailing class?



    This last September, we had a RECORD BREAKING class for all kinds of new records. One of the records we broke was how many cars detailed over 3 days. For the September class,

    17 cars detailed in 3 days!



    Another record we broke was this class was able to detail 3 cars with single stage paint and 2 of the cars had the ORIGINAL paint. The students dug it.

    Here's a dedicated article from that class besides the pictures and comments write-up.

    Here's the class using COMET during the Prep Wash.

    Find any other class that is photo-documented showing this technique? Bueller?












    Final results...













    Here's a couple of BEFORE pictures...






    For everyone that will read this into the future, (I always type for the future, not the moment), PLEASE read the entire write-up before using the Comet Technique. There's a lot more involved and this class was under my direction and supervision the entire time. I point this out because I've been there and done this a number of times with single stage paint. It's not for the faint of heart.
