Default Got paint!

Hey guys just thought I would let you know this weekend I was going to paint my grill and clean the headlights. I got the paint, krylon fusion flat black! Got the headlight cleaning supplies! All I have to do is wait for the weekend. I will take pics of the work

I learned a neat little tip yesterday , while I went to the dealership to try and get PM-3

There was a detailer outside doing headlights, he wet sanded them first then dryed with a microfiber cloth, and sprayed clear laquer on it . he said it last a few years and is better than the buffing kits you can buy.

just wet sand them, then buff them out, no need for a kit. Once you clear them up and the stuff is gone, it's not like its going to come back in a week.... once it's off, well it's off and your lights will be clean and shinny for years to come. No need to spray any laquer on them. That's the cheap way of doing it.
