I only did 2 coats and I love the results. I was thinking in a few weeks of doing it again..Think I'll get even better results? *oh yea, nevermind the date on the pics, my camera was way off. lol

Try wetsanding them a little bit. They still look a little foggy. Maybe its just the angle at which your taking the picture though...

yea they are still a little foggy much better from what they were tho. I was told to sand them. Im a little nervous tho. I guess I just dont want to mess them up.

I would not wetsand my own headlights, but you can use Fine Cut Cleaner on them. It works pretty well at removing some of the tougher stuff. Be sure to follow it up with PlastX, though

i used the micro fiber applicator pad and a micro fiber towel to take it off..im really impressed with those rags. the applicator pad is great too. they're soft. once you wash them a few times i find they start to get a lil rough but still decent

I just bought some plastX from ads in my last order and can't wait to try it out. i've got some pretty foggy headlights and they've always bugged me.

So if the plastX doesn't remove all of the foggyness then a coat of Fine Cut Cleaner followed by PlastX should do the trick?? If so that's good info to know, thanks. :xyxthumbs

I've been thinking about possibly adding this to my business if I like the results and this would help for those really foggy headlights.

For headlights I use 83 w/cutting pad. 9 w/polishing pad. NXT wax. I don't know if that's how its supposed to be done. But it usually gets the job done quick, easy, and with great results. Of course by hand, it is a little harder.
