  1. Any tips for removing a bad clear coat off my headlights?
    I tried the Mothers Mag & Alum.
    Looks like scabs and thicker clear coat in some areas.
    How aggressive should I go?
    Oh, and when others post vids trying to discredit your vids and methods – you know you are doing something right when all the comments say WORKED FOR ME!

  2. I had pits in the plastic lenses from rocks. I did a sanding up to 500 grit, then I wipe on 97% pure acetone to eat outer layer and then polish and buff. I need to try and get some 303 for longevity. Thanks for the video's.

  3. Had to take my bumper off to replace the headlight so i decided to go ahead and try your turtle wax trick. I wanted to provide some real world before and after pics from someone on the viewers end so here it goes: https://photos.app.goo.gl/7m2npj2TDnB2wr8G2

    Those headlights are from a Suzuki Kizashi. The top left is the before, top right is a few minutes into the process, and the bottom is the final result. I'm more than happy with the results!

    Like you mentioned in the video, i had previously tried just about everything to fix these things: headlight kits, different grade sand papers, various clear coats, and I even strongly considered sacrificing a baby lamb. All this just to get clear headlights! Oh how i wish I'd known about the turtle wax trick back then.

    I don't have a buffer so i ordered the kit from Amazon that turns your drill into one. It comes with a few different foam pads and a drill chuck. My previous sand paper moves left some pretty deep scratches in the lens but those are so much better now. Any suggestions for getting rid of those that are left? I'm going to give the polish another go, or 2, before i put the bumper back on and see if that gets the remaining scratches out. Thanks again brother!

  4. Hi

    Your videos are EXCELLENT! Please keep up the good work because it works well.
    Here is a brain teaser for you, have you ever removed haziness or scratches from the INSIDE of the headlight? I have NO idea how they got into my headlight housing. They look terrible. It is covering up the headlight beam itself. A new set for my car costs well over $800. I assume this cannot be repaired without taking the housing out and apart?

  5. Does this apply to "burns?" I made a mistake on doing this and I think the hook it pad dug into the lens cover. I tried to rub it out with the polish, but it's still there.

  6. Hey man you got some awesome tricks! Love your channel!

    I wish I saw this before I did the whole sand method. Don't like the result. Too much orange peel look
    Do you think I can still use this method? Even though just sanded and clear coat? Please respond

  7. Would you only recommend the turtle wax metal polish or also the scratch repair kit they sell? I'm trying to buff out some deep scratches on a motorcycle fairing. Thanks.

  8. Hey brother, just wanted to let you know I used the mother's on my wife's 1997 Honda accords headlamps and they look brand-new. They've never been cleaned and I wish I had taken before and after pictures. Lol. Two years ago I had purchased 2 new headlamps for my F-350, I certainly wish I had known about your trick, my friend!! Keep up the great work and videos, and I'll keep smashin that like button!!! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘.

  9. The power buffer definitely speeds this up but isn't necessary and requires (wastes) some polish. However if you happen to have the buffer then you don't even need the polish, can use toothpaste, but again it will take a little longer.

  10. Waw that is so amazing and awesome, I very like when you go to clean up the scratch with your wax. You know you are amazing person. Thankyou. This video is very amazing.

  11. Thanks brother, I watch all your videos. I have a question for you. I got this older Murano an the hard plastic on the center console appears to have a clear coat that is chipping away. I was wondering if have any ideas that won't damage the plastic. I could upload a video to show you what I'm talking about. What part of Chicago do you live in? I used to live there

  12. Really like these cheap fixes. Couple things I'd really like to see are best way to clean inside glass, especially the nasty windshield gunk. And the other is how to best clean cloth headliners. Keep up the great work.

  13. Awesome awesome awesome! You guys always astound us all. Best and easiest methods ever with proven real results for us to actually witness. Thanks Sweet Project Cars Crew for kicking ass!
