    Hello all, this is just a enquiry to see if it would be worth offering. But I do headlight restoration if anyone's interested, if I get interest I will work out a set price.

    I don't have a price in mind yet as I haven't looked into what places and people charge, but I would consider doing a mobile service too for people that couldn't get to me, obviously within a reasonable distance.

    I wasn't going to bother doing this but I've been told that I should by many people after they looked at my results.

    Here's a picture of my work. I'm located in Norfolk, Harleston.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Where in Norfolk are you? Mine need doing and I never seem to get round to having a proper go at them.

    Bit of a shame that you're quite a long way away! Sorry mate

    Thank you though, had a few people ask how much were the new headlights

    Harleston mate!

    Yes I can, several coats of wax or proper sealant!

    I didn't use proper sealant on mine as I didn't have time! But I can seal them or wax, or both!

    They look amazing, even the edges look good which a lot of people neglect.

    Thank you mate! Never understood why people neglect the edges, if you're not going to do it properly, don't do it at all

    Today I did another headlight restoration on my mates car, his were shockingly bad! I thought I should post on here the results, as I'm sure there's a few people interested.

    Mine need doing desperately and I've not had the time to pay them the attention they need, how much do you charge to do them?

    Defiantly recommend Tomo_Rep.97, he did both mine and my wife's 182's and the headlights look like new. Hopefully he'll put the pictures up here

    Did @markerboy2002 's headlights on Sunday, and his wife's! Both lovely people. Sadly didn't get many before pictures, but they were bad haha. Only a few after pictures. Literally only 2 before pictures

    Two before pictures of the same headlight. Probably the best condition one too haha. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Suppose this could be a before one but not the best picture of the before condition of the headlights. Just so you get a rough idea though. image.jpg

    After image.jpg


    And that's the lot.
