Got skeptic when i first opened the package and saw 3 sandpapers and a bottle of transparent fluid, but decided to try anyways.

First i put on some of the sanding fluid and started to sand my headlights with a p600 paper and then i washed the headlight and starded sanding again with a p1000 paper washed it again and finally started with the p2000 paper. Then i washed my headlight and wiped it dry and when i saw the result i almost started to cry, but then i did the final step and wiped with a tissue that came with the kit and the result.. GREAT!

a machine buff and some good cutting compound do the same peoples. :winky:

Agree. I used some of this and a Meguiars G220 and the lights came up brilliantly! Even used it on the rears, fogs, etc.

It made a world of difference! Glad your method worked too :)

I've been reading about wet sanding for a while now and today I finally bought everything I need to restore all my lights.

Unfortunately I left the 800 and 1200 grit papers in the garage, so I just tried the 2000 paper and the polish. I need the 800 grit paper to remove the stone chips, but at least I managed to remove the yellow hazyness from my old fog lights.

This is what I used

And these are the first result. I will post a tutorial when I'm finished

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
