Wipe off the headlight to remove any loose dirt. Tape off the surrounding paint with Scotch 233+ Premium Automotive Masking Tape.
Put the backing plate onto the drill. Press the yellow P500 grit disc against the backing plate. Use light to medium pressure and work back and forth to remove scratches and yellowing. When the disc is no longer effective, turn off the drill and attach a new P500 grit disc and continue working until defects are removed.
Next, attach the P800 grit white abrasive disc to remove scratches from previous step. Again, work with light to medium pressure After this step, the headlight should look frosted.
Apply P3000 Trizact™ Foam Disc. Mist the disc with a water bottle. Use light to medium pressure to sand the lens cover. You'll see a white slurry as you polish. Continue with 4-6 passes after the white slurry appears. Wipe the headlight lens with a Microfiber Detailing Cloth and inspect your work. Any remaining scratches should be very fine at this point. If not, repeat this step.
Attach the orange foam compounding pad. Dispense a dime size amount of 3M headlight lens polish onto the pad and spread over the lens with the machine turned off to avoid splatter. Polish the lens until the lens is clear and smooth. Wipe the lens clean with a Microfiber Detailing Cloth.
To protect your lenses from future oxidation, use Wolfgang Plastik Surface Sealant. The clear coating will guard against UV rays, moisture, and dirt.
