Hi, I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Today, we're going to talk a little bit about how to restore these fog headlights. When this car was new this plastic was in good shape, nice, clean and easy to see through. Over the years it's become dull and faded. The UV rays are partially responsible for this, the rays that come from the sun although driving down the highway, things strike these headlights, stones, debris, water, dirt, etc. So what we need to do is we need to put a nice clean finish on this headlight. Today, we're going to use a buffer to buff this plastic down and make it a little easier to see through. We're going to use a buffer on this particular light because it's pretty bad and elbow grease just won't do it today. I'm going to apply the wax to the light. I'm going to move the wax around with my buffer. Once most of the light is covered with wax, I'm then going to buff the headlight with a fine buffing cloth, nothing too rigid, I just want a fine buff. I'm going to wipe off the excess wax and now I can see much better at night. This is a quick tip on how to take care of your cloudy headlights. I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
