A variety of headlights were acquired for the demonstration and a great result was achieved in the end.
The original state of this Holden Astra headlight was a surface heavily oxidised, but there was also some serious etching around the indicator and along the bottom that required some 800 grit wet sanding with the included sandpaper.
Most of the damage was removed but there was still a number of small scratches left behind.
To finish this light off the next step was to wet sand with the included 1500 grit sandpaper to remove some of the deeper scratches left behind from the 800 grit paper, this created a uniform finish across the light, followed by the included 3000 grit dry sanding pad and then the PowerBall 4Lights® foam tool was used with the Mothers® PowerPlastic® Polish, both also included in the kit.
The end result a near perfect headlight.
The headlight from a Holden Combo was finished off to a high standard. Only minor scratches remained after the courser sanding process and was easily removed with the 3000 grit dry pad followed by the foam PowerBall 4Lights® and Mothers® PowerPlastic® Polish.
This light was reasonably easy due to the smooth and flat surface with few curves in the headlight. In saying this the light was sill in very poor condition before starting.
An AU Falcon headlight with a few small dull spots were removed simply with 3000 grit dry sanding followed by the foam PowerBall 4Lights® and Mothers® PowerPlastic® Polish those spots disappeared with ease. This was a challenging light due to the size but if you take your time and methodically work from one side to the other, overlapping your previous pass by 50%, great results can be achieved.
The headlight from a Mazda 6 had certainly seen better days (and nights). One side was done at a time, and completed to a high standard. This process was complete without using the 800 grit wet sanding paper which means less work trying to remove the heavy sanding marks. Check out cheapest ceramic injection moulding.
Ten minutes of additional sanding was all that was required to finish this light using 1500 grit wet sanding, 3000 grit dry pad and then finished off with the foam PowerBall 4Lights® and Mothers® PowerPlastic® Polish.
A great result was also achieved with this headlight from a Honda Civic. After assessing what was required before proceeding, wet sanding with the 1500 grit paper was as far as we needed to go before the 3000 grit dry and the foam pad.
Always asses a small area before proceeding to ensure you aren’t doing more damage to the light in the renewal process.
You only need to use a small amount of polish at a time and adding more as you go, this will prevent flinging out all over the place. You can always add more but its hard to put it back in the bottle.
The end result……….. Hundreds of dollars saved on replacement headlights by spending a short amount of time with our fantastic NuLens® Renewal system to bring these severely damaged lights back to life.
