On my 2002 Chevy Avalanche 2500 8.1L. Have owned it for 14 yrs. Replaced headlights housing. In the past I have used wipe new light restorer but that is just a band aid and the foggy/cloudy just comes back. Purchased 4 upper lower lights for $110 on Amz. Spent several days buffing compound/ Meguiars 105/ 210. and finished w/ NU Finish Wax !! Happy w/ results ! (y) :drinkup::drinkup:

that’s quite the buffing compound! Make your boss pay for it!

new guy on his way home from work today, probably
Not going to be in to work tomorrow.
Not sure what we’re going to do, he said he broke his wrist and his head hurts like crazy.
My guess he won’t be running a weed whip or
Mower the rest of the season.
And this was his only car, which I’m sure only has PLPD on it. no other people were injured, just him, he said he brakes went out and instead of hitting another car, he hit the tree.

Looks great! I'm just curious what about the wipe new didn't work out for you? Does it just not last for you? The reason I ask is I had a friend get wipe New on my recommendation but he didn't do the sanding part, just tried wiping the chemical on. If you don't do the sanding part first the results are not nearly as good. Your compounding method worked really well here though, so if it works for you go with it!
