    Those look great! Worth $50 imo. Are you applying that product with a brush? Does mixing it with the mineral spirits help level it out like that? Is it a couple thin coats. Thank you.

    You're only as good as your last detail

    The product is applied with a Scott's Shop Towel (the blue ones). The mineral spirits allows the mixture to be workable, but the mixture is self-leveling to a certain degree. Only one coat is applied.

    Re: Headlight Makeover

    Yesterday I had a free headlight restoration from my friend, using the Headlight Restoration Kit..

    Based on your experience, after wetsanding the headlight, can I use DA with 4" woolpad + Ultimate Compound to clean the light haze from 3000 grit? Thanks

    Re: Headlight Makeover

    Question, is Spar Urethane suppose to be white inside the paint can? I bought one today and I noticed it was almost like watered down milk. Is it suppose to be that way? Because I tried to apply to the sanded headlights and it was just drying off constantly.
