Diy for HEADLIGHT HAZE FIX

Took about 15/20 mins including the wet sand

Hmpf what's needed?
- 2000grit wet sand paper
-water in some type of bottle
- any type of plastic polish (I have a pic what j used)
—cordless drill
-polishing ball
-few micro fiber cleaning cloths

So here are your steps and ill include pictures

Step 1
Give your headlights a good wipe and clean of anything that maybe on them like bugs or dirt get that **** off.. 

Step 2
In your water bottle or sprayer wet your headlight and your sand paper and start to lighty and carefully sand the headlight(s)..  And remember to keep them wet.  You know the haze **** is coming off because as you sand you'll see the dirt coming out and it will look light brown.  To check and see you got it all sanded wet the light and wipe it off and look and see if the haze is gone.

Step 3
Wipe your light clean grab your polish and wipe it on the light and then get your drill and do your buffing.  Take your time and don't rush it comes out better. 

Step 4
Once the buffing is done grab one of your handy microfiber cloths and wipe the headlight down real good to get any remaining polish off. 

Step 5
Go back to step 1 and do the other light

    nice work. You can even start with 1000 grit if the hazing is really bad. You will want to clear coat the headlights after sanding as they will haze again in a short time unless you keep polishing them regularly.

      Looks great! Hit them up with some wax or sealant for some protection and shine.
