I had to watch it twice because I didn't see a car the first time through.

I just sanded out my headlights again. I had done it over a year ago and they were hazing up again. I sealed them with the new Blue Magic headlight sealer. The first time I just polished them after sanding. This time I polished them then sealed them, so we'll see how it holds up. The stuff goes on pretty watery but once you coat the entire lens and let it dry is seemed to make the lenses ever more clear. The next day were still a little hazy from the sealer, but I misted them with quick detailer and wiped them down and they were crystal clear.

Ok!
The sanding kit I used came from Harbor Freight Tools, I'll see if I can get another one...
