    Epoxied the lower plastic back
    Will look like this on the top when it’s done

    B2B916DB-601A-45D4-8D9D-D6727777F029.jpg

    I’ll put the brace on tomorrow morning and remove the top to see where to drill through.
    Should be ok..

    Then decided to polish my headlamps.
    First time since new so grabbed the old shop unit.
    We don’t use it anymore but I still like it..
    Just have to keep after it. So I think once a year from now on.
    Never realize how dull they are until you see a before and after.

    Headlamps look great. Did you use compound, cutting pad or something else on them?

    All I used was the polish and protectant.
    If you use a compound or cutting pad you really go after the uv protectant.
    I try the polish first and if it has the deep yellow then you need to take off the uv layer and compound the plastic.
    So in that case we use a restore with a clear coat with uv protectant.

    It’s a 3m brand
