I’ve never used that uv spray before. You’ll have to report back later on how it performs.

Need to have my Evo Headlamps restored. Scared to do it myself since a new set is like $1500 at this point. Was thinking about using the Cerakote stuff since it’s a series of wipes and what not.

If you’ve never done it, it’s seriously not bad. It’s even easier if you have a polisher. A neighbor just recently asked me where he should order replacement headlights. I went over to take a look at the “issues” he said they had. He said he had done a “headlight restore kit” from a box about a year ago and it went yellow and fogged like a month later.

(ignore tape falling off. I forgot to take a “finished” pic on that side when neighbor asked how it was going in the midst of tape removal. )

Applied some chemical guys UV protectant and then 2 coats of wax on top of that. Should be good for 6-12 months without needing some more UV protectant.

So I slack on the washing/cleaning the inside of the Accord.. :hiding: I'll admit the inside was pretty bad.

My buddy (who has detailed all of my vehicles - he does it here and there for friends/family - keeps his cars immaculate) detailed my Accord yesterday.

He said "Booty (aKa Jeff) this is probably the worst (inside) that I've seen your Accord"

Le sigh :sadface:

Here are some pictures he sent me of the after.

Oh PS: I don't do tire shine. I hate it. He knows me well and doesn't put it on there. He's not a fan either.
