    Anyone ever used "lense polish"?

    Should I cave and buy some aftermarket lights?


    Opinions or experiences?

    you can get kits that come with products to polish the lights, 3M makes one

    put the problem is most don't come with UV sealant to apply after doing it...without the lenses will fade again

    there is a kit that comes with a UV sealant spray, just can't think of the name right now

    i really need to do this to my lights, they are terrible

    I used the 3M kit from Autozone, and it did a miracle on my 2000 Taco. After about a year they still looked good, you cant go wrong.

    Yep tried it all, the 3M product is the best, hands down. You don't need to worry with the UV protectant bull crap, just make sure to wax (I use NuFinish) your lenses every 6 months, or more if conditions warrant.

    I just use some rubbing compound on them every time I wash it (every 2 months or so) and seal them with some wax. They don't even fade very much between washes in the NM sun.
