Hi Guys,

Did a couple of searches and can't find this topic anywhere..

I bought my car with stone chips/marks in the headlights. I tried to get rid of them with polish.. didn't work. Then used 2000 grit sandpaper and wet-sanded. Felt really smooth as i was doing it but when they dried they were very cloudy. Then used my scratch removing polish on them, this reduces the cloudyness a fair bit but still cloudy.

Anyone have a fix for this??

Cheers,
Dave.

there is a lense restore product available it doesnt make them new but makes them better you could also try a good buff and it will take a long time to get the scratches out.

you have effectively scratched the s**t out of em, albeit fine scratches

i would be googling "remove scratches from glass" and see what you find,

otherwise i would be heading to ebay for a replacement set of headlights

Try toothpaste with a random orbital(polishing pad). Worked on my RX2 windscreen :)
