Harbor Freight Headlight Lens Repair Reviewed

My old truck had headlights that where yellow, hazy and scratched. Harbor Freight sells a Headlight Lens Repair kit for $14.95. You don't get much in the kit: drill attachment, 2 resurfacing pads, 1 polishing pad and a 1/2 oz. bottle of polishing gel. This is a 4 step process:

Step #1: Wash surface. I just used a glass cleaning wipe.
Step #2: Insert Drill attachment
Step #3: Resurface 3 min. each lens with damp resufacing pad
Step #4: Add small amount of the polishing gel to face of polishing pad and polish for 3 min.

With clean up and before after pictures it took about 25 minutes. I like the results and my lights should be brighter now.

Long weekends in Wisconsin are too short...

Made it home safe and sound from an extended weekend with friends in Wisconsin. Did a couple days of fishing and one full day of riding. Watched the Vikings beat the Packers and fell asleep on the couch.
See bike4trails and my photos.

Who is Stratomatic?

My photo
Stratomatica - is my blog place where I document things happening around me or that interest me. The name Strata, geologically speaking, are layers of sedimentary rock or soil with internally consistent characteristics that distinguish it from other layers. Too deep? Well, I like guitars. Mostly I like the sound and feel of Stratocasters.
