I just did that same quality job to my best friends 98 honda civic. I used meguiars plast-x and a buffing pad that attaches to my drill. Looks beautiful. :thumb:

Glad you're happy with the way your friend's Civic lights turned out. My process is a little bit different, though. I do it all by hand, no drill or buffer. That way, there is no excess heat applied to the lens or swirl marks in the final product. I use 8 different grits of sandpaper to wet sand the lens in order to remove the failed UV coating, deep scratches, and oxidation first, then hand polish with two different polishes (one of which is PlastX, actually), and finish off with a coat of wax. Takes about 1 hour 10 minutes if they're in-vehicle, but a little less time (because there's less masking and clean-up involved) if they're removed. I have high resolution pics available if you'd like to check them out for a comparison.

Yea. I don't think sanding is always necessary. I think it depends on the condition. His weren't scratched really, just about 80% yellow and fogged (oxidized) I kept the plast-x on there liberally so it would have a "lube" as I buffed it with the drill.

I agree. If they're starting to yellow/haze, and you catch them fairly early, the light polishes like PlastX can be fine. The dealerships I work with refer me cars whose headlights are all over the map, from just starting to haze on the very top edge of the lens, all the way to totally yellowed, scratched, and hazed, with deep crazing of what's left of the UV coating. Some of these cars, despite the condition of their headlights, are fairly new and expensive (did a 5 year old Mercedes coupe a few weeks ago), so they like my process because it'll take care of even the worst of the worst, and they all look consistent on the lot when they're done.
