Default Headlights: Clean'em with plastic CLEANER, not polish.

I've said it time and again, just never got off my lazy *** to do it.

Here is the proof that you need cleaner (not detailer or polish) for your headlamps.


Guess which one hasn't been cleaned.

Hey spade I use to use carnauba wax on my old MX-3. But I'm curious what cleaner did you use. Looks good

Oh dayums yo! Dis iz Honduh-Tech not Mustang-Tech.


I hope this works on my Talon. I have almost died multiple times due to the fact that I can barely see with my lights at night. I tried waxing buffing and glazing but none of that worked.
