I did the headlamps on the talon a few weeks ago with the turtle wax headlamp restoration kit (little green box). was like $12 from pep boys and worked wonders. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to spend the $$$ to get new lamps.

I just did this to one of my headlamps and both rear lamps. I used "Mothers" aluminum polish and a rag. Just using my hand no buffer. Came out GREAT! Can't tell one headlamp from the other now.

i personally found that everything under the sun wasnt strong enought to last, i even tried the restoration kit that involves sanding. the problem was the yellowing inside. i just replaced them with aftermarkets. they look the same and make the front end look completely new. it sure makes a hell of a difference when driving at night. I invested in them because in my eyes theyre a safety concern if theyre too badly yellowing

Default toothpaste

I've used toothpaste(not gel) to polish my safety glasses, and it worked good, does anybody have an opinion on this?
