Basically, all you have to do is sand your plastic lenses with 1500-2000
grit sand paper. Preferably wet sand.
You'd just get a better cut with wet sanding. Now, some say you need a
adhesive promoter... I think it's a bunch of crap. As long as you sand your
lens, you wont need it.

Chemical Guys Tech Talk shows you the professional way to restore plastic
headlights back to the original crystal clear appearance. Chemical Guys
will show you how to wet sand the headlights and prepare for the polishing
process. Wet Sanding is performed with Chemical Guys Sanding block and
extra fine sand paper.
Next, the headlights are polished using V34, V36, and V38 optical polishes
using the orange, green, and black Hexlogic polishing pads. The Flex PE-14
Rotary Polisher teamed with the Evolve 4R mini backing plate has the
polishing power to remove the sanding scratches and restore the crystal
clear appearance to the headlight.
To protect the headlight from feature fading from sun damage, we use a coat
of JetSeal which is formulated specifically to protect the headlight
against harmful UV Rays.

I actually bought the lights off eBay for $30, but here's the link to
purchase them from LedGlow:
This tutorial is based on a 2012 Scion tC. I'm pretty sure it can work for
the 2011 and 2013 Scion tC's because they are all similar in the interior.

How to Install Footwell Lighting that Fades with Dome Light in a 2006-current Honda Civic
Cost: Around $20-30 Difficulty: Intermediate Required Skills:
partial disassembly of a car's interior, and use of a soldering iron
Looking for the giant clock video?
UPDATE: According to various comments, this will work for the current
Honda Civic (or at least 2012 models) and will also work for the sedan.
Make sure you test the wires first, though, in case something is different.
If you're going to try it on these models, make sure you find out how to
remove the paneling--the process may have changed. Again, this video was
made specifically for the North American 8th generation Civic Coupe, which
covers model years 2006-2011. You will likely have to alter the procedure
in some way for all other models.
This is my first how-to video, so please bear that in mind when you watch
I've been wanting to install footwell lighting in my car (a 2009 Civic
Coupe) for a little while, and instead of just doing it, I decided that I
should record my progress and make a video of it for YouTube. Well, here
This modification wasn't nearly as difficult as it was time consuming. I
mention in the video that it takes 1-2 hours to complete, however this is
if you have access to all your materials at one time. I spread this out
over a few days and ended up spending much more time then I thought it
would take, just because of my start-and-stop schedule.
Basically, what makes these footwell lights unique is that they are tapped
from the dome light's power, so they will dim in and out with it. It took
me a very long time to find the information on the series of tubes that is
the Internet that showed where the dome light's wires were. I have to
thank the people at 8thcivic.com for contributing to a forum that
eventually gave me all the info I needed.
Some users have reported compatibility issues with the wire
taps/scotchlocks and the light strips. Ii is my recommendation to solder
wires directly to the strips, either using the solder pads or the wires
that may have come with your strips. However, for those who are
apprehensive of using a soldering iron (after all it can be dangerous), be
advised that you may have to use two sets of wire taps--one to make new
wires from the OEM wires, and another to tap your lights to these new
wires. Again, I always recommend soldering since it provides a better
connection, both electrically and mechanically. But if you want to avoid
soldering, just remember that you may need to find away around various
TO ADD A SEPARATE SET OF LIGHTS that stays on whenever the ignition is on,
use a fuse tap (which can be found at most auto parts stores) of the
correct size. If I remember correctly, this is for the ATM fuses. The
fuse tap does not need to be low-profile like the fuses are in the car.
Tap the radio fuse, or any other fuse that does not receive power when the
key is removed. Technically, the lights will be on when the key is in the
ACC or ON positions. The radio fuse was the only fuse that I found worked.
Use the smallest size fuse that came with the fuse tap for your new
lights. Then, wire the positive for these lights to the fuse tap and
ground them to something metal under the dashboard. I highlighted what I
used to make a ground at 12:38--I simply used a zip-tie and some bare wire,
looping the wire around the ring and securing it with the zip-tie.
DISCLAIMER: I will not be responsible for any damage that you cause to
your vehicle as a result of performing this modification, nor will I be
responsible for any voiding of warranties that may result from this
modification, and nor will I be responsible for any local laws that may be
broken by the use of footwell lighting. Since this footwell lighting only
operates when a door is opened (the dome light switch does not make the
footwell lights come on) or the car is being unlocked from the outside, I
doubt it would break any laws. However, if there are laws prohibiting
footwell lighting in your area, any fines or other consequences of breaking
the laws shall not be my responsibility.
YOU CAN NOW GET A 5 METER STRIP OF THESE LIGHTS FOR ABOUT $15 ON AMAZON!
Just search for LED Strip lights or Tape lights. You can also find them in
waterproof versions. If you want to do more projects with these lights,
look for them on Amazon. If you would like to add LED underglow, which I
explain how to do in another video, I would order a waterproof 5 meter
reel, and use a small portion for the footwell lights.
Besides the actual LEDs, most of the other materials required can be found
around the house. Remember to always remove the fuse to the circuit you'll
be working on, and be sure to check that the fuse you removed does indeed
protect your desired circuit.
Thanks for watching!
