headlight cleaning

I used mothers plastic cleaner with one of my polish ball bits and it came out pretty decent, it didn't re-appear at all yet.

3 - since i was at a quater car wash place, i used high pressure soap next but didnt actually squeeze on the trigger.

4 - then comes the rinse, rinse it good, make sure you get everything.

5 - let it dry, you can also use rags to get any obscure areas you may have missed. i drove it for a while afterwards to evaporate the water under hood.

6 - hose down the bay with armor all or similar product(i use formula 2001). i let it sit for a few minutes then went to wiping off any excess. and you will prolly get some on your cowl and windsheild, so prepare to clean those up too. VIOLA! nice looking engine bay!

example - it took me about 15 minutes of work for this......


jim
good one.
