Toothpaste is the best, and brasso is good, too.  A bit more expensive and harder work is T Cut.

 

I would go for toothpaste applied with the finger as Trevor has said.

First time round all these where no good. the answer was to get a product from Halfords that is specific for the job.

Thanks for all the advice. Have tried the toothpaste trick with limited success but I think the secret is what you put on the the glass after treatment. Will try the wax .

I concur, worked a treat, then used a good quality silicon polish to seal them

Hi Rodger,  if the exterior of the lens is the problem then Halfords do a restoration kit by Meguiar which is very good. It is not cheap at £21.99 but it comes with a special buffing pad which fits any drill, also a stobborn defect kt for areas that are very badly marked. I used it on my 1999 S Type and with a bit of elbow grease and about 10 - 15 mins per lamp the results were great.

Welcome to the Club, Tony.

 

I hope you enjoy the Club as much as you will enjoy your S Type.

 

regards,

 

Peter.

 I bought the Meguiars headlight cream and a buffing wheel from halfords....attach the wheel to a drill and go to work....took about an hour to get them all looking good again..although i'm having another go this weekend to get them perfect....works well and cheaper than buying the 'kit'.....
