    Re: Drying Towel Scratches

    Re: Sanding, polishing headlights...

    You're welcome. Look into using a drill or a small rotary for sure. Hand sand where needed for safety / tight spots. The coating goes on and self levels nicely. No orange peel or texture. ...

    Re: Sanding, polishing headlights...

    You're overthinking it and looking for perfection. The cracks you're seeing are likely in the plastic lens itself. They are simply crazing.




    Here too, IMO, your doing too much. A...

    Re: Microfiber DA pads vs Foam
