I really like your work Hamish. Great job on the cars done in this thread.

I am looking to rejuvenate my current Lib GT head light on my car. I ended up buying the Headlight Restoration Kit from Autobarn about 3 months ago, but havent had the time to use it.

This is the kit, picture was taken from another website.

How do you go about the restoration proceedure?

Also, I know you will have your own techniques, but would be willing to use the kit I bought on my car just so I feel like I didnt by it for nothing?

Please PM me to discuss if you wish.
Cheers

It's getting the time to use it. Good to know the product still is holding up for you. That was always one concern.

It is. running own business and building a house. Plus I cycle a lot. Perhaps I'll find some time over the coming weeks and give it a go. 30mins per light you say, or for both?

30 mins to 1 hour is all it should take. Good luck and let us know how you go. As Simon "says" it's easy.

Shav, I will send you a PM.

Headlights can vary from easy to very difficult depending on the severity.

If you don't have to wet sand then DONT!
