It is critical that paint damage does not occur during headlight refinishing.
1: Use wide masking tape on the body parts next to the headlight lens.
2: Apply a second row of tape outside of the first row if the buffer is going outside
of the tape.
3: Apply two layers of tape if the buffer is getting through one.
4: If paint damage occurs, use scratch remover to repair.
5: If scratch remover does not take care of it sufficiently, use mild rubbing
6: Wax the area where the paint was repaired.
Bottom line: Be careful not to damage the paint, and repair the damage if it occurs.
When customers see this type of damage, they often don’t complain – instead they
just go somewhere else next time and we never find out why they didn’t return.
