Got my LensRenew(http://www.lensrenew.com/) kit in the mail today and I'm VERY excited to use it. Here's what the kit includes:

Here's the applicator holder, and you can see the different buffers/sanders are held on by high strength velcro:

The aluminum polish didn't do anything for my headlights. I've used EVERYTHING.....sandpaper, rubbing compound, Mother's Mag & Alum polish, plastic polish, etc.

Pics will come shortly.

Just finished.....the headlights look great, I'm gonna be washing the car up tonight and taking some "whole" pictures tomorrow.

I only did the lense on the left as that was the original one, the one on the right I had replaced in Dec. of '99.

how many headlights do you think you could do with one kit? more than a couple pairs?

also, did you put them in a vice or something to keep them still when working on them? just have a friend hold them? :D

The kit could do a good amount of pairs of headlights....more than 5.

I put the headlights between my legs while sitting, I'm sure a vise would work better, maybe not b/c you have to apply some downforce with the drill. You could get a friend to hold them as well. :thumbsup:

cool. Hey i see your in TX, anywhere near houston? when i go to the 5th anniv, i am going to be coming thru there to see an astros game probably monday the 21st. I dont know if you were going or when you were leaving, but maybe we could caravan from there. i wanted to go thru Louisiana and hit up burbon street possibly... im still in the process of planning all this. :D

Hmm, Firme too! are you guys getting a group together from TX?

Think some of us are leaving that Tues. and some Wed. to go to the 5th. Think we're going through Baton Rouge, but New Orleans is about an hour south of that. Maybe on the way back or something. Hit me up on PM as the event gets nearer, and if you haven't gotten your 'Stros tickets, I'll go see a game w/ya. :thumbsup:

cool i will let you know about the game, i havent decided if i want to worry about buying tickets ahead of time or when i get there. i cant imagine it being sold out, but maybe its a good idea to get them now. i wouldnt be able to hit up new orleans on the way back, i was thinking of going up to st louis from the 5th, and then back to CA thu the midwest and denver. maybe i can meet up with you guys in baton rouge on tuesday or something. i'll let you know as my plans get more finalized.
