Did headlights as in Article

Ok so today I went and bought all the stuff to do my headlights with. I took the list off the Mustang Evolution articles (how to) page. First I went to a auto paint shop in town and they quoted me for everything on the list 150. yeah I laughed at them and told them I can get new ones for that price. On the way out they stopped me and told me of a autobody shop that would do them down the road for 60. - 120. so I went down there being the lazy person I am.. and he told me probably 2 hours. I was frustrated as heck so I went to a local hardware store and guess what, they had everything I needed excluding the compund which I already had. One sheet of 600 and 1500, a five pack of 2000. and the buffer tool to connect to the drill came out to 15.00. I came home and worked on them for about an hour and a half. They look like brand new now thanks to Lex and some of the other guys on the forum.. I took before and after just to show what they looked like..

waxing plastic will sometimes give you an oily looking film from certain angles... but itll defanitely help in the plastics oxidation life
