Have tried it before, not so successful, and these were pretty far gone. 800>1200>2000 grit paper, then polishing cream, then clear coat.
I do the missus lights with a clay bar kit, works quite well. Your results are pretty good for a munted coating.

Hurts. Requires Money. And is nerdy.

Headlights on the Lux have always been milky. Shouldn’t have passed RWC, but meh. Bought a kit to cut back the glass and polish them up. Was a little dubious of the claims.

LTIH. You have to sponge on a protective coating and let it cure for 6-8h.
Had to unexpectedly pick up Felix and it rained for the first and only 5 minutes of the day on the way, and it munted the coating :(
Now you'll get 60k on resale value rather than 55K :p.

Easy, borrow against that sydney house you own.
Just to get to a house in Sydney I'd need my own reality TV series.

Cue the voiceover: "Meet beeb - Starting with a ball of wool, he trades it for a BBQ, then trades that for a ride-on lawnmower, trades that for a 3yo BMW 5-series, and now a house in Sydney could be his - but can he seal the deal and make his dreams come true?"

This is the lifestyle 7mate has taught me I deserve, and can achieve with no risk whatsoever as long as I'm an obnoxious bighead with a delusional sense of how great I am and all the disposable income of a large TV network.

Just coming off close to 2 weeks sick leave after coming down with something after a trip to Melbourne. Haven't taken sick leave in years, but as @ozzybmx says, its tricky to navigate now. Work didn't want me there at all, but after 1.5 weeks, the work piled up and the pressure was on to come back even though I was still coughing and spluttering. Had the COVID test after the symptoms ramped up, test came back negative. Started with mega sore throat, fever, sensitive skin, etc, and tonsils have been on the edge, even still a bit dicey now.
Perhaps it was this RSV thing, but thankfully haven't passed it onto the 4 month old or the wife, touch wood.

For a moment you had me...then I realised you didn't type "meet Been - starting with an 8 ball he trades his way to the top of Kings Cross..."

Having to ship my damaged crash helmet for assessment to the distributor in order to qualify for a crash replacement discount. I offered to hacksaw it or put a hammer through it but they need it there. FFS.

It would be difficult for them to undergo their valuable research into the performance of used helmets without having it on hand.

My pod buddy relayed to me in a horrified tone that Netflix has a category called "gay tv shows". "better not watch that!" he says.

wtaf.... Herculean levels of diplomacy was displayed, and I resisted the urge to rip him a new one for being a fuckwit.
