99-04 Mustang Brake Light Restoration

This is some before and after for probably one of the most common problem areas of this style mustang... the rear third brake light lense. I don't know if I've seen a mustang this style without a crapped out lense. I guess it is the material.

With very little work, you can restore this lense to factory finish. Here is the process and products used:
  • Wet sand with 400 grit (3M Sandpaper)
  • Wet sand with 1000 grit (3M Sandpaper)
  • Wet sand with 2000 grit (3M Sandpaper)
  • Polish with Meguiar's ScratchX on a Lake Country orange pad on rotary at about 1,200 rpm
