buffed my old headligts

Recommended Posts

I had a 35 year old, dried up can of #7 heavy duty Rubbing Compound I used on a old cotton sock with a little water to hand buff my factory original head lights on my '99's oxidized and yellowed lenses

 

No sanding with any wet or dry of various grits, No electric drill or elec buffer. no masking off the fender etc in-case the elec buffer went wild.

Just the compound.and a piece of cotton sock and a few minutes of elbow grease

Its pretty abrasive stuff so I never tried it before.

It worked great, hand buffed maybe 3 minutes per side. Them washed off with a soft brush and water hose.

Nice and clear no yellowing or oxydation

 

No they arent $700 HIDs , But the lenses look crisp and clear now, Plus I have a new ECM and my truck is running great ! :thumb1:

The new ECM is clouding your thoughts Rick. Everything is better when the truck

 runs right. Just kidding of course.
