I swear by this stuff. My headlights were BAD, ask tsugsr. after 1 hit w/ plastx, it made a DRAMATIC difference. i'm gonna use it on my windshield soon and see if it makes a difference w/ all those swirl marks in it.

Before:


After(it was kind of a rush):




I don't have any better picture at the moment, but pictures don't show how this stuff really works.

yea just like evryone else this stuff is awesome! Especially great with the powerball mini. Just coat the head lights and go at it with the powerball and when done buff it with a microfiber rag. You'll be surpirsed and if not clear enough do it again until it is.

Ok lucky for you guys I just did this to my integra today and have some up close and clear shots,

Ok this first one is how my brand new headlight looks after half a year.


This is my old head light which has been on the teg now for almost 8 years and I just restored it using this product.

You can only see a slight difference in clarity maybe but no one notices.
I also recomend making sure that you use the soft foam pad to put it on with and a terry towel to take it off... MAKE SURE IT IS OFF VERY WELL, DO THIS IN THE SHADE !!!! I cannot stress this enough because I have seen white swirl marks that can happen once it hits the sun to quick AND HAS NOT BEEN FULLY CLEANED.

i've used this stuff for my lights before too with great results. as a side note, you can also use this product to remove light scratches from your cds effectively. just cleaned a couple of my scratched dvds

I have yet to try it on any cd's or dvd's but it says it can be used on it, but I wouldent think the scratch could be any thing very bad for it to actually work.

There's no need to polish the inside.

You have to remember that the damage will eventually get to a point where you can't repair it, or you'll need to take more drastic measures such as wetsanding.

X2, The plastic itself sometimes is already soo weathered that wetsanding will come into play but I have yet to have to do that. Still better then buying a new headlight from Acura because if I remember corectly it was hundreds of dollars for one headlight VS some sanding and polishing you take your pick.

How long did you leave it on? Your supposed to take it off when your done polishing it, and I just use a rag with windex on it to wipe it down and im done.
