Default product request,

the passenger side headlight is pitted pretty bad, it looks nothing like the drivers side (looks brand new) I wanted to know what'* the best product to use to buff the headlamp out, or where to take it to have it done.

I believe they make a plastic polish. 95 SLE helped Toasty with his at NEBF.

what like Mothers or something? Will I need to use a power buffer or can it be done by hand?

I used Meguairs Plastix on my headlights, tailights, and any plastic lights on the outside of the car with great results. Give it a shot.

We use a light abrasive paint polish with a random orbital buffer. You may want to try the Megs producr mentioned above or Megs Scratch X.
