VW Passat Enhancement Detail +
 
Hi guys

I hope you guys are ready for the holidays ahead, enjoy some quality time with friends and family!

anyways I have a Passat interested in a enhancement detail + headlight restoration. Owner brought this car used, and wanted it looking good. So I did my best to stay in her budget and getting her car looking new and bring cheers for the holiday.

Wheels cleaned up with 1Z w99, ONR, Af Ironout, with various brushes

Paint clean with ONR, AF Ironout, Spot corrections with M105 + Menz P203, Paint cleanse with AF tripple and Protected with AF tough coat.

Very nice. What did you restore the headlight lenses with? When restoring the lenses, how long do you expect them to last before they start to fade again?

Keep in mind you can also just buy brand new headlight lenses for the E46.

I sanded the headlamps with Meg 1000-1500-2500 uni-grit sand paper. Then polish the haze off with Meg 105 compound and Meg 205 polish. Protection was opti-coat, the most durable coating on the market. should last at least 2 years.

I know just figured I might try restoring first if it's not to expensive.
