NX-1 --- Headlight Restoration

Hey guys, here are some pics of the headlights I had to fix on a used car from a dealer I was asked to restore. I should have taken the pics before I started them, both were looking the same, they were yellowish looking, the pics I took showing before I already had them washed and some of the yellow was already removed. After I was done with them, they looked like new again.

Check it out...

Nope! I wet sanded it, compounded it and then Diamondite Headlight Restoration kit to finish it off. I think the wet-sand and compound before the Diamondite works nice on extremely bad headlights.
