so after picking up my new to me 2001 Raptor earlier this week, i noticed that the headlights were looking nasty and yellowed. they had also seen their share of scratches, dings, and general abuse.

i didn't want to get too crazy with the restoration because i knew they'd be beat up anyways, but I wanted to at least restore some of the clarity of the lenses.

just some standard rubbing compound, elbow grease, and The Scorpions playing through the headphones ;)

i apologize for the shitty pics, they were taken with a Droid1.


left one is about half done, right one is still cloudy



getting there. you can see the difference.



all done and assembled

no prob.

i might go back in the future and redo them with actual wetsanding, using 1500, etc, all those. i just was too lazy to go to the store after mowing the lawn in our humidity :)

post pics up of yours when you're done!
