The thing in the woods, is that at Marks house or...? I think I'd be too scared to go to that.

Ordered a ton of stuff for the GTI last night. Actually going to try and have it done and drivable (but maybe not 100% complete) by spring.

Headlights are old, some one backed into the grille and cracked it.

It's weird though, the headlights arent faded they just have a ton of tiny scratches/cracks, almost like the UV coating is killing itself.

I have to compound and polish my wife's Fit headlights every six months because of fading/yellowing. Meguiars Ultimate Compound and Ultimate Polish with a light cutting and polishing pad on the DA polisher does the job in about 10 minutes. I'm sure I could extend the timeline if I put a good sealant on there, but I just wax it afterwards.

Im scared that if I start polishing them it will be a never ending saga. At least the cracking isnt getting worse & it's only noticeable when the lights are on.

Before trade in, my lights had the small cracks near the hood line. I just ignored them. Never any condensation or anything, so I didn't care haha.

It seems I won't be a part because he doesn't get notified when I quote him.
