Headlight Restoration

My head light were really foggy and looked really bad on my Mazda Rx8. I invested $20 and about 20 mins of my time to make them look like new.

This is a photo of how my headlights looked when I started, I taped up the edges to protect my paint from both the drill and the solution.

I followed the instructions and added a nickel size amount of the solution to the pad which is connected to my drill.

Then spent about 2-3 mins applying an even coat to the entire headlight with the drill starting slowly and building up the speed. Once all the solution was completely rubbed in I repeated the whole process for the other headlight.

I then repeated the process for the both headlights, (Not required but I didn’t take long so I want to make sure i had done a good job). Once complete a quick rub with the lint free cloth.
