    So today I finally got around to doing the headlights. Well one of them anyway. I'll do the other tomorrow now. It's a really easy procedure using the 3M Headlight restorer kit. I bought mine from ebay for £16. It's made a HUGE difference to the look and function of the lights and I would highly recommend anyone with even slighty foggy lights to do this. Only took 20 mins for this side.

    It comes with full instructions and there are plenty of videos on youtube showing how it's done. The only downside I can see is that it makes the rest of the front end look even worse! Lol. Heres some pics. I to a picture at each stage but I'm not sure they will be in the right order :Smile:

    Wow fantastic result. A few members have used this kit and it is indeed the easiest way to restore. Time to do the other light :whip:

    New plates arrived today. The old ones were an advisory last MOT so not taking any chances. They look bad anyway. Got new set for £22 online with postage from number1plates.com who were very swift. I'll get a pic up once done

    This pictures playing havoc with my OCD, I feel I should edit it and rotate it 180 degrees, heeeheee.

    Hi everyone. I've been busy since my last post. I discovered that the accord cannot have LED bulbs in its main beams. They don't give a focused beam pattern so out them came! Looking for alternative now. In other news the accord passed her MOT with no advisories at all! Very pleased with that :-D
