My son picked up a 3M kit to do the headlights on his girlfriends car. My fee for use of my drill was to do the headlights on my Jeep. Looks nice, all the pits and scratches are gone and the lens is clear. Doubt it will help that much with brightness of my lights, but it looks nice.

It definitely helps the output, not only looks. My sister's hadn't been polished for over a month, came home one night, polished them up, and the light output increased probably a good 50%.

If you think about it, it makes sense. Clearer lens = cleaner and brighter output. Less "crap" in the way. Not to mention it takes 10 years off the Jeep.

I have to polish my headlights soon.

I picked up some 15inch Snowflake wheel today and I'll be painting them black in the next few weeks. Then I'll throw my 31's on them. Seen a few around and they look really good.

turned over 187k today, officially have put more mileage on it in the past 4 months, then than previous owner did in the 4 years she owned it. i guess two road trips to ga and daily driving it will do that.

How do you "mis-place a driveshaft"? Are you sure he didn't pull the shaft because the VC is shot? Guess you'll figure that out when you get one in!

Post pics now, ya hear.
