I like it - thanks for taking the time to create the video and post the link here!

I'm going to try this on my wife's Honda...I assume the toothpaste should be the white paste variety, not a gel?

We used toothpaste to clean our rifle slings and web belts in bootcamp. It works.

Great video. And to think you can probably pay to have this professionally done for about $100/headlight!

Thanks Filipe

For crying out loud........I can't keep a secret. :shock: I've been doing this since 1989......when I had my recon shop in NY. I practically lived at the shop, so I had toothpaste at hand. I did first try many of my rubbing compounds........and then I had a brain storm while brushing my teeth looking at a car with foggy headlights, and my Idea was born. 8) Now if I can keep the rest of my secrets secret. :roll:
