The wife went clothes shopping tonight, so rather than follow her around I decided to go and look in Halfords fortunately I had my gift card in my wallet, so decided I should spend a bit

The old girl hasnít been getting much use recently, but things are about to change as the wife is now going to be using it more so gave it a wash down tonight, mainly to get rid of the flies collected from the trip down to the big smoke yesterday no photos but itís still looking good, and I still havenít had chance to machine polish it yet so just doing my best to keep the fillers topped up

Finally got the missing piece of my O.C.D puzzle and picked this up from work which I had posted there by a fellow forum member.



And it now finishes off the line



Big thanks to Steve for letting buy it from him

My Wifeís B6 Passat

My wife has now decided to claim this as her own but at least itís now being used I suppose, any how it got a much needed clean this weekend inside and out.
Standard method of snowfoam followed by 2 bucket wash and rinse with filtered water

Well the Passat went for an MOT today, although not due until mid August I thought Iíd be proactive however due to work and training courses I didnít get chance give it a once over first and it failed I knew the front tyres where getting low and due for replacement but didnít check the rears properly
Two new tyres fitted to the back for the new ticket and itís booked in to get the other two fitted next week so clean bill of health again normally I would pay more attention to this but Iíve only done about 150 miles in it in the last 3 months and the wife has not done much more either

So to celebrate it passing its mot I decided to try to fix the yellow headlight

Used the Autoglym headlight restoration kit I picked up at the start of the year and to be fair itís a good little kit, comes with everything you need apart from the drill

So to start with


Lots of crazing and itís also a bit yellow



First job mask up



Forgot to take all the sanding stages but this one is p800



And this is after working down through the grades to p2000



Starting to get there now



Finally the polishing



Looking much better


Finally finished! All in took about an hour to achieve what Iíve done, itís not perfect but it does now match the other side



More updates soon

Thanks bud, the headlight is about 95% there now, although I can still see a bit of a yellow tinge which Iím not sure if I can get rid of. Need to make a start removing some dents next along with a bit of paint work before a machine polish
