since they are my coming soon relatives.. i decided to give them a free restoration, since ive never tried it before on other people’s cars so it would be kindof a challenge and also an experience. which turned out amazing!
Today’s Dr. Restoration’s prescription
ONR NO Rinse Wash
OPT Hyper Compound
OPT Hyper Polish
OPT Quick Wax
Makita 9227c Polisher
Makita stock wool pad
Lake Country Cutting Pad
Lake Country Polishing Pad
So i prepared the surface for sanding. Started with a ONR wash ( not only the headlights but the whole car )
I love classic toyota’s they have a simple beauty in them…unexplainable…
This is how the headlights look like before anything was done…
Then clayed the headlights first…no much contaminants so i didn’t take a picture..
After that i taped up the sides to prevent the car paint from being sanded by accident!
Prevention is always better than cure…
Started sanding at 800 > 1000 > 1500 till its all evenly sanded…
I remember KC saying, ONR can be used as lube…so i was thinking if i use ONR as lube for wet sanding will it be better? hmmm….. i did it anyway..
50% to completion
Then magic started to happen.
using the same procedures as car paint. i compounded the headlights with care as its plastic…
followed by finer cutting pad…
then following to polishing pad….
Like brand new! clarify kaw kaw!
No more space for me take picture so i had to guess the angle for this…best i could do…
Then after i showed my GF’s mom the job she > “well done”
thats all i could ever ask for right?
Total Man Hours: 3hr as i was creeping at my petty pace…enjoying my moments with makita
simple yet easy restoration. satisfaction +1 thanks for viewing…
p/s i did this for free sometimes you should give in other to get something in return…
