    Well done. Very good voice over narration. Good lighting and camera work.

    Toothpaste works pretty well as an abrasive cleaner for headlights. Just smear some toothpaste on a clean towel and start rubbing the headlight. Add a little bit of water periodically to help the towel move easily.

    Great video. Are there any options for DIY to source the parts to the kit? What actual grits are those sandpapers?

    I know a drill polishing attachment is only a few bucks if you look in the right place, can the plastic polishing compound be sourced separately?

    Otherwise, great stuff!
