do you speak French or another language fluently? Jamie was asking "taked" like that because it's not proper english, the correct word for use there would be "took" taked isn't a word in english.... crazy english rules for past tense...

He's French Canadian.

Notice how he didn't spell "voila" incorrectly.

In support of my neighbour from Quebec, if he's using this site to learn how to spell properly, he's never gonna learn.

hi dude, I tried to remove it but I stopped cuz I had only a crappy 300 sand paper si I keep it for the big job and not for the bumps, I started to grind with a sandpaper 300 to remove the yellow, AFter it I get a fiberglass paper 1000 and I clean all the surface, after this step I did the same thing with a 1500

You dry all surface and apply 4-5 "layer" of clear coat ( bad word I know, but my english dictionary is far.. ;) )

and enjoy!

I think I shall do the same.

Lets not dwell upon the fact he has to look up words that are taked from his dictionary. Atleast our fellow Escort lover knows where to go for indeed, cheap and ingenious tricks.


I'm second on that list of poor folks, bubbabob.


Did you have to open the lights or did you just sand the outside of 'em?

Nice job though!

I used a Motomaster clear coat, the same as u can use when you do car paint

Its only normal clear coat for paint job

if u buffed ur healights and they are now not very clear ( even if you passed 30 mins to try to make them bright with the 1500 fiberglass paper)

After the 3-4 thin layers of clearcoat, they will be like new ones
