Thread: Headlight restoration

  1. #1

    Question Headlight restoration

    I restored my wife's 05 Acura MDX's headlights by wet sanding with 400>600>2000 grit sand paper and finished up with my DA using an orange pad with V36 but I noticed there are small scratches in the headlight when looking at it up close? any tips for a better outcome?

    Yes you need to hit it with a white pad and some V38 to finish it up. You have sanded and compounded but not polished yet.

    Thanks! I'll give it a shot this weekend.

    Clean it really well before you polish so you don't create new scratches. Meguiars PlastX or a 25% isopropyl alcohol solution.
