Re: new lights for my active sport?

its a common things thats cropping up on punto's is the exterior beginning to degrade

You have 1 of 3 options that i know off

A - Buy a headlight restoration kit for about 20 and some elbow grease
B - Buy 2nd hand lights off ebay/scrappies that are in okay cond, but they could start to peel away too
C - Buy new, costs alot and still gotta fit them as well

Mine are going that funny white look, thats them degrading on the 2b, im going to go with option A when i come to it

To get light clusters out - you need to release part or remove whole front bumper im affraid, there is a fat lip on these lights - that wont get past the bumper....

i buff these lights up in situ
op you say 03 but thats changeover year so

if earlier model these lenses really can go off so i use 1200 wetndry with plenty of water/stardrops and then a good electrical buff with g5
if later big lenses then usually dry g5 and an electrical buff gets the worst off

if you want to keep them mint then a clear coat of 2 pack lacquer could be added once minted

dont put a heat gun near them the lenses go white (had to see what happens for learning didnt i)

I bought a set off ebay for next to nothing (think it was 10 for both) and they were in top nick, but when the rain and about 6 months came so back did the condensation lol. Option A sounds the best, then seal the bastards..
