It has to be buffed out. I have used a kit that goes on drill that worked. It lasted 6-months and needed it again.
Thanks bro I will definitely try it! I bought the stuff from auto zone that you wipe on and let it haze then wipe off and it doesn't work
Yes sir, I do. Tried the kit. Better than I started with but wasn't happy with the results. But I'm definitely gonna try this.
Honestly, I don't understand your OP.
okay let me explain these new cars has these headlight's and they fade which is call oxidation< spelling)
which turns your headlamps white and then your lights look very dim.it looks like its on the inside but it isnt,get you small bottle of brake fluid,take a cloth rag wet it ,rub the outside of the headlight ,and do not get it on your paint. then your headlamp looks new again and you can see.
you must not have the problem if you dont understand.if it does happen you will know of the night
because your lights will look very dim.
sure dont work and my brother say to me you dummy use brake fluid simple,and i told you dummy you should have told me this last year not after i spent over 50 bucks and didnt help lol.
it works, my new truck it still looks new but i cleaned it yesterday so if it has started to oxidation dont have a chance. and these store charges out rages price and simple can of brake fluid works great.
