Forget the buffing

Using McGuyver-like skills I discovered tartar control crest works miracles.

Heres the best solution for yellow headlights that I know of. Its a little work, but well worth it. Sand the lights with 1000 grit sand paper until the yellow is off. Then use 1500 grit sand paper to smoth it out real nice like. Now clear coat the lights. You should never have to worry about the yellow funk anymore! ;)

TARTAR CONTROL CREST! HAHAHAHA, that is definately macgyver like skills, but what did you use to scrub with. Oh and barely, I sanded my sideview's and i know jack sh1t and they still came out lookin showroom, so I guess the lights would probally work too, but a little bit mroe $$ is at stake, no?

I used a hard adult toothbrush or a mild bristle brush (like the one from a hardware store. Like I said it works!!!!!!!!
