Default A head light refresh

over the last three years the front end of my mini has taken a lot of daily damage. I figured it was time to replace the pitted 3m film on the lens and respray the head light rings.

Before: No buffing would get this out... they are done

Nice! Big difference. Where did you get the film? I wouldn't mind picking it up cheap.

They came out well, my headlights on the BMW were in a bad way, so I used some wet and dry sand paper 1000, 1500 and 2000 grade along with some cutting compound and polished out the marks took a few hours but worked well

Looks great, wish I would have wrapped mine in Vinyl. Actually I wish I could wrap everything I own in 3M vinyl.
