Hauled my first old vehicle with my EX yesterday. It's a 1953 F100 I was trading off. Hauled back a 1965 Mustang. The EX didn't even down shift going up the hills. So much better then my F150!

Note to all...

Restorer works reasonably well on lens that are lightly obscured. It can make badly faded lenses better, but I've never seen one that will truly restore a badly faded lens -- and I've tried most of them.

What it's best at is keeping the lenses looking new. The time to use it is when your lenses look good, not when they look like they're ready for the recycle bin.

Use it one or twice a year when the lenses look new and you may never see the need to fix or replace the lenses!

To add to this, I used to 'restore' headlights in Florida for extra cash. I would wet sand the plastic starting out with 400 grit on some lights. On DAZ's lights, I'd wet sand using a circular motion with 2000 grit then use the polishing pad. They should be pretty clear after that.

Even the TV commercial, the before and after shots show the after still a little cloudy. You really have to wet sand them. After it's all finished then use a good plastic polish with UV protection as a regular maintenance. Hope this helps.

Yes bad headlights need to be wet sanded before polishing.

I as well have brought back horrid headlights and taillights to like new condition. Wet sand, buff, polish just like paint but not as much heat when buffing.


BTW, good morning X crew! Yet another day humped over the 7.3 o-ringing.

Thanks to Mike (locknload223), Bill (liftnw8z) and Eric (High Intentions) I got my V code front springs, Bilstein 5100's, and rear F350 block installed at NEST this past weekend.

We also managed to do the ball joints over the weekend too!
