I am painting my headlights before nopi, but what kinda paint I can use. Do i need a high temp paint, and also what brand has a really dark shade to it because my friend got some black high temp paint and his turned out a dark grey when it had dryed.
ok i got it done now. they came out perfect. only thing is the lens cover has buildup on it, it'e been there but it contrasts more with the black now, i heard that toothpaste and a high speed buffer gets this off. what else would do it?
the lens has build-up? are you talking about condensation, or something else? if it's condensation, all you'll need is a bottle of clear silicone (or siliconized at least) caulk. just look at your headlights, and anywhere you see a gap between the lens and the housing (even a small one is enough), squirt some caulk into the gap and let it dry overnight.
if you're talking about build-up like from waxing, then you can just use a paint cleaner (Mother's or Meguiar's are both good) if you have glass lenses. if they're plastic, then you're kinda SOL, cause anything that will remove the wax will probably remove parts of the lens as well.
