Repairing Fogged Headlights In the Lincoln Town Car
Repairing Fogged Headlights
You will need the following:
Be sure lenses are clean from dirt and bugs
Apply a small amount of 3M compound to the headlight lens, a teaspoons worth should do.
Take the buffer and adjust the speed about half way. (if speed control is available)
Center the Ripple Foam Pad onto the surface of the buffer.
Take some 2" masking tape and tape surrounding paint and chrome.
Gently move the buffer back and forth over the lens. Apply more compound as needed. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO HOLD THE BUFFER PAD IN ONE PLACE FOR TOO LONG OR TO LET THE EDGE OF THE PAD HIT THE PAINT ON THE CAR. THE PLASTIC LENS OR THE PAINT CAN BE BURNED.)
Buff the lens till the fog clears away and you get a nice clear luster on the lens. (BE CAREFUL OF THE PLASTIC TIPS ON THE LENSES, THEY TEND TO TEAR THE PAD AND MAKE THE BUFFING DIFFICULT.)
Wipe off the excess compound from the lens with a clean terry cloth.
Apply a small amount of the 3M Imperial glaze to a clean terry cloth towel. Rub the lens vigorously wit the glaze.
Take a clean terry cloth tire towel and buff of the hazed polish by hand.
Pressure wash the excess compound and polish from the car (if a pressure washer is available) or just wash the vehicle as you normally would.
