Restore Headlights with Rupes Bigfoot

Good morning,

I have the Mark II with yellow and green pad.

What other pad/polish I need to do a perfect job?

Thanks

It all depends on how bad the headlights are, if there are just swirl marks on them, then that should do it. However if they have faded and dull, then you might need to wet sand the lights and them polish them after.

do you have any pictures of them?

Hi casti

If your headlights are faded I put up a basic guide of how to restore them.

Thanks for your replies...

What do you think if I:

1. Wet sanding with 500, 800, 1500 and finaly 3000
2. Polish with Rupes (first green and after yelow)
3. CG Jet Seal for sealing the headlights

Regards
