    Its a polishing pad that fits onto a power polisher which is smaller than the standard size pads which makes it a bit easier.

    How much would you charge just for a headlight restore? How long would it take? I was thinking of coming over one day and getting it done by you whilst I wait if that was possible? Thanks!!
