Sorry folks, been a bit of a delay getting this job done with one thing and another.

Anyway this is the kit I decided to go for in the end:





I found the task nice and easy if you go careful. Although the headlights weren't too bad I still used the sandpaper before the pad and polish.

Right side during (no going back now):

I'm sure I could get them a bit better if I spent more time but I am very pleased with the results and thanks to those here that offered help, it's appreciated.

Looks brilliant that mate, I too found the kit quite easy and that review I linked you was from way back when before I'd even attempted machine polishing! Put a wax on them for now to at least give them a bit of protection

Thanks mate. Yes I'm really pleased with the results. I've put some Auto Finesse Tough Coat on for now until I get something better.
