    These were from a 12yr old Subaru. I give them a 9/10 considering they done by someone previously who hit them with some pretty heavy grit paper and tried filling it with layers of clear.

    Looks great!

    Have you ever tried the Griot's Garage headlight resto kit? I ask because I did the ex's Mazda 6 years ago, guaranteed for 2 years and after 2 they still looked great What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Finally a break from the rainy weather. Cleaned her up and finished her with some Poly Seal from Xtreme Solutions.

    I have not used theirs and while I'm sure it's good, based on what I've seen I think there are better results to be had. The difference is that their kit suggests spraying the coating on a lens that's been finely sanded but not polished back to full clarity.

    With my process the lenses are not only sanded but then receive a quick 2-step polish which leaves them crystal clear. The ones you see above are fully coated but even prior to the coating being sprayed on they are 99% of what you seen here. Polished back crystal clear and like new.

    The coating I use is Meguiar's G17804 Headlight Coating and goes on with two coats and slightly enhances the clarity but more than anything, it seals in the correction work. The polishes I use are Rolite Heavy Cut Scratch Remover and Rolite Ultra Fine Scratch Remover. All three products are awesome and among the best I've used and I've used many.

    Hope this helps.

    I detailed a Toyota Camry earlier this week. Nothing super exciting but it certainly needed it.

    A quick foam with Griots Surface Wash, as the car was just dusty from the week. I used Griots Best of Show Detailer as a drying aid.
    Ready for Cars and Coffee tomorrow.
