    Sprinter headlights...

    I sanded them yesterday, used 600 grit wet sand, then 2000 grit wet sand, then dried them and sprayed some uv blocking clear gloss plastic adhesion paint.

    I'm thinking I may go over them again with 2000wet then another coat of clear, then compound and apply some wax... should last a long time.Name:  20180705_190834.jpg

    The TRUE highest cost system is the system not installed properly...

    Do you go to a boat repairman with a sinking boat, and tell him to put in a bigger motor when he tells you to fix the holes?

    Nice job. Wish the factory would make a little upgrade so that doesn’t have to be done.

    I did that deal with three vehicles. ----Temporary solution to a permanent problem. Replace the assembly usually for around $100.00 or less using after market from the net.
    remember, with electronics; when its brown,its cooking and when its black, its done!!!

    This is important. A composite headlight assembly can be over $1500 from the dealer.

    I have a 2006 2500 myself, and the lenses have not gotten to that point yet. I haven't priced replacements for it yet.
    A Jeep and two trucks that were getting pretty bad that look and act as new now.
