Yes it needed some winter attention!
The headlight lenses faded & yellowed a bit, so onto using the kit!
This did restore them quite a bit 80% clearer!

The old PIAA headlight bulbs were dim & yellow. My flashlight was brighter than them!
So onto new modern Zeon Fueled Bulbs! (kinda like HiD)


Woh are they nice & white & bright now! I can see again!
Under the hood got a much needed bath as well!

To keep the lights nice & right, an Exide Edge AGM battery got installed.

SF,

Looks very good. Are you giving the Simoniz kit a thumbs up?

Guns, for an inexpensive kit, I would give it a
There is a good amount of polish provided, and hand sanders/polishers.
Next time I do the lenses will be later in the spring, and for the smaller left over hard stains, I would like to try a dremell pad with the polish at high speeds and see how it does.
Keep in mind if your lenses are real bad, it can take a lot of hand scrubbing from course to fine pads to get them clear/better again.
I did most of the work with the yellow hand pad scrubber initially.
