View Full Version : Dirty JDM Pre-facelift Headlights

My jdm headlights were very murky and yellowish in colour so I grabbed some standard red bottle T-cut (for body work scratches) from my garage and followed the instructions on the bottle!
Now they are gleaming, the plastic on the inside is clean also and the projector beam far better focused.
In the end this has saved me cooking the headlights in the oven for dinner that day.

So before going through the full cleaning process, my advise to anyone thinking about this is to try the simple way first ;).
