How to use this kit:
Clean the surface of your headlight, removing all dirt, grease and residue
Tape all exposed areas not to be polished to avoid damage
Depending on the severity of fade in your Perspex, choose an abrasive disc and mount it onto your hook and loop backup pad.
Spray water onto the surface regularly with the spray bottle provided to prevent drying but not to rinse or wash away the slurry created during polishing.
We suggest that you use the least aggressive abrasive pad first unless the surface requires a heavier grit.
Begin working the area requiring restoration with the abrassive.
Move the pad up and down, left and right in even movements on the work area.
Clean the surface thorougly between abrasive pad changes so as not to contaminate the next process.
Keep the surface cool and wet to prevent the surface getting too hot. (Very Important!!)
Inspect the work area by wiping off the residue and keep working until the area is to your satisfaction.
Work your way to the finest grit of 1500 ensuring you have sanded the area thoroughly.
For the final finish, use the glass polishing compound with backing pad and glass polishing felt pad (The firm side of the polishing pad does the work, the soft side secures to the backing pad hook and loop) , spraying the compound onto the Perspex and polish the entire surface (keep cool by spraying water with the spray bottle provided).
On completion wash and store your polishing pad to use again on your next project.
