does anyone know how to fix lexan headlight covers for a second gen 3000gt?
my friend and i tried using some paint thiner to get the paint off of the inside, andit ended up like messing up the inside of the
lens. if it helps at all we were trying to do a robo mod to my headights
Glass ones are easy. But it IS possible to robo your lexan lights, but you have to sand, sand, sand, buff, buff, sand, buff and youll almost never get it perfectly shiny. SInce you already messed it up, you can try using fine grit sandpaper, starting with 400grit and work yourself down to 1200-1600 grit and see how good you can get it. If not, your gonna have to buy some new lenses.
damn, lol. thanks man.
I own a sign and graphics company and have worked with Lexan for years. Never use paint thinner to try to clean up foggy lenses. You can remove the lens and use polishing compound with a foam pad on a variable speed drill so as to not put melt marks on the lens or you can buff it by hand. If it's just the outside you can buff it without removing the lens. If you did damage the lens with the paint thinner, then your only course of action is what Tom recommended. Hope that helps.
Oh, BTW, what is a Robo Mod?
look it up. its where you clear out the lenses, take out the inner cover, and paint the inside of the housing black. you then put on just the outer cover (when its clear) and leave it like that. alot of people just put halos in, but i opted for led strips.
