So, I finally was able to do something with the Avalanche.
Of the many things I need to address on the truck, one of the easiest was headlight restoration. After twelve years, the headlights, fog lights, et. al. were yellowed and oxidized.
A few weeks before, I was digging around the garage and found some Rain-X headlight restorer that Jenna had bought a while ago. She had never really used it so the package was practically brand new. I had more of a preference with Mother’s Headlight Restorer (with Power Ball, an attachment that goes on a power drill that does the polishing), but as a trial run, Jenna and I decided to use the Rain-X on her Odyssey.
The results were pretty good. Figuring that the Rain-X brand did a good job, Mother’s would probably do an even better job.
Boy, was I mistaken. Granted my lights were pretty damaged, but after a full pass, it just didn’t seem it did very much.
It didn’t look bad. Heck, it looked better than it did before. But, I wasn’t as impressed with the results as I was with the Rain-X restorer. For reference, I’m including the driver side before any restorer.
As you can see, the bottom damage was extensive. The top I had just done a pass with the Rain-X.
The next picture shows the end result before I applied sealant.
Finally, the end result. If I was to do this all over again, I’d have saved my my money and just used the Rain-X rather than buying the Mother’s Restorer with Power Ball.
Well, here’s my new (old) daily driver.
So, looks like I’m going to have to accelerate plans regarding work on the Custom S. Still trying to figure things out, but I guess we’ll see soon enough.
