R33 GTR headlight Restoration
Steps taken
1. 3M Masking tape around the headlights to protect the paint.
2. start off with 2000 grade sandpaper
3. then 2500 grade sandpaper
4. finish off with 3000 grade sandpaper
5. Machine polish sanding marks off with a DA polisher
6. Machine polish with a finishing pad with a DA polisher
7. Seal headlights with a plastic sealant coating in this case Gyeon Trim



Thanks Afer,
I hope I can keep them this shiny and they transform the front end of car no end.

Well chuffed with the result.

You need to sort out that eye sore in the centre console. I hid the box and remounted with flying leads with the dial knob on the dash. A neat solution.
