Is it possible to Q mend my lens?
My R1 toppled over in the garage leaving a shallow graze right across the headlight lens. What can I do? John Roberts, Newcastle
Answered by KCMC, MCN forums You will need a variable speed drill, two lamb’s wool buffers, a buffing-type wheel and some T-cut. Take the headlight out and sit it between your knees. Put plenty of T-cut on the buffing wheel and keep the drill speed down or it will overheat and melt the plastic. Wipe clean every 30 seconds or so to check. This should take the worst of the damage off if you do it properly. Then use another soft buffing wheel to polish it lightly with the wax polish. Then polish by hand with a very soft cloth and a good wax body paint polish.
