Another Headlight Thread.

Recommended Posts

Just a little line about headlights, again. I need to know why, after putting silverstars in today, i only notice a small difference in light quality. I have not cleared the amber strip out of my lenses, but my question is, are the headlight covers on the '96 es 300 smoked, or are mine just really dirty? i notice a bit of light displacement right at the lens. I never really thought about Cleating my headlights, but if i can clean out the lens, then i will go ahead and pull that pesky amber strip while im at it. The thing is, the lenses look like they are actually slightly smoked compared to the lenses i see on this site. Any input is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance all. :D

95-96 plastic yellows easier than 92-94 ones as well as it having 3 lines across on the 95-96 and the chrome is more gunmetal than bright chrome.

You can try something like the Novus three step plastic polish...

All depends on how bad it is. If it is bad that a plastic polish wont remove most then you need a high speed buffer ..TO BE USED BY A PROFESSIONAL ONLY otherwise your WILL burn the paint of the bumper below it.

just one last thing ( for now)... can i use the levels and right left arrows to aim my headlights or is there a better method? this is the first car I have had with actual aiming guides-- i dont know how accurate they are. last thing i want to do is blind some poor !Removed! because i trusted gauges instead of drawing lines on the garage wall lol..
