Sooooo I was just thinking of this issue seeing that my headlights have been peeling for about a week now. I was just wondering what should I do? I was reading about some one said wet sand then spray clear coat on em or a fine grit sand paper but wouldnt that scratch the lens I kinda dont wanna buy all new headlights and or either want to scratch my lens on my headlights now.

Any ideas on helping thus issue?

Thanks.

Gen 4s dont peel!

I would think a very high grit wetsand paper and a few shots of clear would suffice though.

What kind of clear thought? Like spray paint clear lol

And yea I was watching a few vids on how to wet sand your lights and polish em.

Idk I like my halos. Do gen 4s have halos? I dont think they do.

well i guess its all a matter of the lens used, some people get lucky some dont and that happens, but cleaning it up will be your best bet (and you know it) GL!

if your car is going in for paint anyway get them to wet sand and shoot a bit of clear on them while they're doing the car. Then you'll have a quality clearcoat on them instead of that rattle can nonsense :)

So I seen a vid on you tube and jizzed myself over the retro fit lol so is there a place I can buy retro fit headlight with out having to do it myself?

So I think I will go with the retrofits but I dont wanna do it... lol think il buy the headlights from hidwerks cause my stockers are peeling to.. so my headlights would be completely new but does hidwerk retrofit headlights? And if so any one know how much so I know a price to tell my girl to get for my bday that is right around the corner
