Default Aftermarket headlight units for 2002 SSEi...

Hi,

I am looking at either using a headlight restoration kit or purchasing new headlight units all together...

My question is: One of the headlight units on my 2002 SSEi has the word BONNEVILLE on it while the other one doesn't...

Are both supposed to have BONNEVILLE on them or was one of them replaced with an aftermarket unit?



Thanks as always!

Use Meguiars Headlight Restoration Kit. Only $25 ($20 if you find it on sale) and works great.

I used it and wasted my money. I ended up buying aftermarket units anyway.

worked fine on my passenger side headlight. Mine came with a drill buff pad to use with it though. If you try and do it entirely by hand it would take hours to do one light.

I have traditionally wet sanded and buffed them.
Usually, 2000 grit is more than enough to clean them up, but on occasion I've had to use 1500 grit as well.
This is a little more tricky, but I have been very pleased with the results.
