how did you do that i tryed the sanding and buffing method someone told me on the erdt board and they cleeaned up good but now there all scratchy and foggy instead of yellow oh please do tell how you got them so clean.
I started off gettin all this
220 grit Wet/dry Carbide
Then basically worked my way up, i was kinda dissapointed the whole way up cuz it kept gettin foggy right away, i think it was due to the residue from previous grits in the water, so anyways, i busted out the big lathe with the buffing disc on it, and put some plastic polish on er and started twirlin the fuzzy white disc on the lenses, and wow, did they ever come out nice, some ppl said something about clear coating them, i was like *bah* but im sure i´ll hear about it in 2 weeks when the go bad ;-), but now its time to go get some Xenon Blue Lights
I asked the guys at the ford body shop about the lights turning yellow and how to clean them and they told me Rubbing Compound will fix it. Not really thinking it would work a went to PepBoys and spent the 10 bucks on it and to my surprise it came out great. i took some before and after shots but i dont know how to post them but trust me my before lights were horrible and my after looks like nukewater.
I´ve got a set of those blue xenon lights for the lowbeams in my BMW headlights and they r0xx0r... I don´t know what people whine about with the glare. I understand what they´re talking about, but in real life, it doesn´t happen.
However, my high beams are incandescents and they glare like mad off of road signs, but that´s about it.
I say go for the blue ones, but be careful that you dont fry the light switch by running excessive current through it.
i tried that too but i think the yellowing is on the inside. correct me if i´m wrong but i could not get the outside looking as clear as my clear turn signals. i just figured it is in the inside that isn´t making it clear but i don´t know how to clean it up. maybe its on the outside but i just can´t get it clean enough to look good. could it be the inside or do i need to just work more at cleaning the outside
ok does rubbing compound really work? i have heard that sandpaper works too, but i'm not sure. there was a how to page up somewhere but i can't find it anymore. if someone knows anthing please let me know. the ladies don't find my yellow lights sexy
