Use some mouth-wash and you'll get 50% less plaque on them too! :D

The bloke whom sold us our R33 came round a few weeks ago for a cuppa and said see you have been buying new lights for the car.I told him about the toothpaste trick and he was upset he had been driving with the yellow lights during his time with the car.

I T-Cut mine and they came out perfect. Polish off with some window cleaner, job done. Took me 10 mins at the most.

use the same toothpaste as i did. with the same non-sticl pan scourer.. rub hard in little circles for a couple of mins on each light... and wash well off with water..

sorry that it didnt work as planned.. let us know what happens.

if you lick the lights, are they minty ? lol

t-cut works a treat, also tried colgate total advanced fresh and my lights smelt nice for a while

this tallk of scouring pads scares me,i just use a peice of cotton cloth like waxing the paint,a scourer might give deep scratches that are hard to get out

thanks folks. I'll try some t-cut next.

If all goes well i'll put up some pics.

Anyone fancy a 'Who's got the oldest but cleanest headlights' competition?

Sounds a bit bizarre to be honest, but if your lights are old and clear then post em up!

Cheerio

I have tried all sorts in the past on the headlights (no scratchy pads or toothpaste though).
The cleaners meant for convertibubble plastic windows are sh1te, as are bug and tar removers.
Meguairs scratch x has brought them up like new, 15 mins per headlight and a little bit of elbow grease.
I would post up a picture but am currently having problems with that function!
