Hi, after a pair of good condition headlights to fit a 53 plate 350.
Mine have suffered badly from the sun.
Thanks
Greg

My bodyshop did a polish on mine and they came up brilliantly (sic!). Does wear off after a while unless you put UV protectant on though...

I've not done it myself, but there are a number of DIY kits that can do this.  Seen some good results on some websites as I was close to buying a kit at one point.  Of course, better to choose a product that someone has used.

I agree with all of the replies here 350, but to get them back to something like new... and to last you are best getting a kit where you can re-coat the headlight or they will dull again in no time at all, you are not going to get them like "factory" finish where the headlights are given a UV protective coating, that coating is what goes dull after time and that is what you will be rubbing off when polishing back.

 

Please let us know how you get on with this.
