    The world will be awash with scrap screening after the vaccine arrives, maybe just wait a bit?

    i always use some g3 compound on plastic headlight lenses, some need a bit of wet n dry first but always eventually come good. you may just need the patience of job to get it done mate (''have the patience of Job. To have an immense and unyielding degree of patience and conviction, especially in the face of problems or difficulty. A reference to the biblical figure Job, whose absolute faith in God remained unshaken despite the numerous afflictions set upon himself, his family, and his estate by Satan''). i've no doubt you have the conviction and will persevere to the bitter (and shiny) end.

    There’s mobile guys out there that come out to you to polish the plastic headlight lens on modern cars. The headlights on my son’s Audi TT were scratched to hell and really foggy like a night in ye olde Londinium.
    Chappy turns up with his little van of tools and witchcraft, an hour later and they were so clear you couldn’t see the lens at all...cost him 45 folding beer vouchers......it could be worth a try?

    Well this is a fine parcel of sour meringues and no mistake .


    got the next 4 tabs made and welded on ,then onto the strut ends...

    i found that the thread in the end of the struts is a super fine left hand thread , so tapped the middle strut to m16 x 1mm ( no idea why i had that tap ?)











    anyrdup , on to the outer struts , one of then had a fitting in it , cut flush ,,so that had to come out , i used a 10 mm carbide burr in the die grinder ,and ground a slot in it , just down to the threads, then put a groove into the other side till it got a bit wobbly , then unscrewed it ..










    ,all going well you may say , the clarion call , "he's getting on with it" , may well echo across the defensive towers and dykes of olde englande ..! ...er...



    no.


    cos now we come to the insectipoid in my germolene.




    tying to get the scratches out of my bits .



    here's a bit ...






    you can see the down side to getting it from the yard where it has been ripped off a bit of machinery with no thought for me AT ALL !


    yup, its well and truly scratched up ,looks like my ankles after i was chased by that girl in pernumbuko with the 3 inch nails that i only escaped by climbing up a rare deciduous equatorial fir tree .



    i tried all grits , from 80 to 2000 , i tried cloth wheel and paste , you name it i tried a combination of it , the 80 grit marks would not come out , the 120 grit would not take out the scratches , i tired the da and compressor , A LOT, best i could get was this ..










    still pretty hazy , so i am a bit stoooofed , no idea what to try now , i suppose options are ..



    try and find a place to polish it for me .


    see if i can find new for less than polishing costs .


    make the top bits out of glass and try to drill holes in it ..


    find a better way to polish it myself .






    oh woe woe woe is me






    regards
    robert
