Headlight yellowness

429 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  MrNiceguy
My headlights were sorta yellowish and far from crystal clear like i want them. I sanded the outside, but i think the grit i used was too low (like 230), after i sanded the yellow off, i sprayed two coats of clear gloss over's not yellow anymore, but definatley not clear. it's like a fogged looking color now, just translucent.

Anyone know how i can fix this and get them perfectly clear? Maybe there is some moisture inside? However it doesn't look like it.

THank you

yeah if you used 230 grit sand paper that is way top rough you need to go to like 1000 or 1500 grit sand paper, and resand it that will smooth it out some but,

That fine? I thought i'd resand with like 400 then put another coat of clear, then sand with 1500 or so and put one more coat on.

NO CLEAR! Forget the clear...these are plastic headlights, not quarter panels. The clear is just not a good idea IMHO. Instead, TRY THIS.. Just the simple How-To on fixing your scratched or pitted fogs. Works like a charm man :thumbsup:

Depends how far gone they are man....honestly I sanded mine with 400,600,800,1000,1500,then 2000 before I polished them and they still look like crap....I just need to find some 01, 02's
thanks guys...ill try that cale.

yeah they arent super bad, fixable i think
