    Exclamation Civic Headlights (extreme makeover)

    So about a month ago I decided to tackle this project.



    I thought it was going to be a project, not impossible. As I was polishing the car, I kept bringing out more and more knicks, small deep scratches, and other junk. I knew it had a bunch of scratches, I didn't know it had that many. Along with the clear coat failing on the hood, front and rear bumper falling off, bunch of dents, well let's just say its going to take more than polishing to get it how I want it. Anyways the headlights were the best part.

    Wash
    Moose Cutting Cream on Cutting Pad
    PwC
    (I probably should have kept working on the driver headlight since there were more divets. But I didn't want to go too far.)

    great work! did you just polish up the outside or did you open up the headlights and clean inside & out?

    If you did open the headlight to clean inside, what did you use to clean the chrome reflector?
