Tightened down the loose connections on the sub, since Fast Track had to take it out back in November to access part of an exterior panel. Got my bass back Also put in a switch to toggle my ricer interior lights, since they were always on by default.

I used the 3M headlight restoration kit and polished my headlights.



I tried wet sanding a few times in the past but the 3M kit seems to work better for me.

I followed the instructions that came with my 3M kit. I suggest you do the same if you received instructions as well. Here is a link to the 3M kit PDF file:

http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/7...stem-39008.pdf

This is what I did in the video:

I washed the headlights
Dried the headlights
Made two passes with P500 grit sand paper, changed to a new P500 and did another two passes.
Made two passes with P800 grit sand paper, changed to a new P800 and did another two passes.
Sprayed a lot of water onto the headlights and used the P3000 foam disc and made a few passes.
Polished the headlights with the 3M polish on the 3M orange foam disc until I felt it was acceptable in terms of how clear the headlight lens looks.
I finished it off by applying some Meguiars PlastX polish by hand with a microfibre cloth

I recommend getting a body shop to spray clear coat on the headlights after polishing or atleast apply a layer of LaminX. It will help keep the headlights looking like new after the polish.

I would return it and buy the 3M kit. It's better. I polished so many headlights. Starting with traditional wet sanding, TurtleWax, Mothers and Meguiars kit but the 3M kit is gives the best results. At least it does from my experience. Even though I've done this many, many times, I still consider myself a beginner so it would be best to triple check with other automotive enthusiasts or better yet, a reputable body shop will know the best way to restore headlights.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Mike

Redid my rear fenders with ts14. Rear wheels stuck out farther with the 25mm spacers so the initial fender work I did a month or two ago was insufficient for the new setup. Had to cut pieces of the metal inner fender and essentially the entire plastic fender lip off. So far no rubbing...

Which is good because my plastic fender was literally melting onto my tires and I now have to peel pieces of my fender off of my tire sidewalls
