how to restore front turn signals.

Postby gjc5500 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 10:29 pm

after being tired of looking at my hazy signals i decided to restore them. now they are not perfect, but they look better.

i wetsanded them with 600p paper, then i cleared them inside and out using walmart brand clearcoat.

i ended up taking them further to get rid of the pitting. i used 320p, then 600p, 800p, then 1500p and re cleared them. it made them look brand new (except for the crack)

not bad at all. they do sell new corner lights on ebay which fit well but eventually they all turn hazy. good info though!!!
