Used MacGuire's (sp?) headlight lens restorer to take the haze off the galley pole holes on our 3270. Was very pleased with the results. I took the picture after the right side was finished. Quite a difference compared to the left. Both sides had bug screen impressions that I couldn't get out.

Nice job. Maybe just what I need.
I have been thinking of getting new lenses (about 50$ each) but never done it because I have curtains over the hole most of the time and I see pretty well through the screens when they are up.

Is there a way to change the lenses? I have two that are cracked and new ones are not available anymore. Can the aluminum trim be removed for that purpose without ruining it?

Awesome, that looks great!

Is that Founders All Day IPA I see in the picture? My favorite beer of the summer!

My wife did the opposite. She took Scotch Brite to both heads and the shower lens. I told her nobody could see in unless they stuck there face onto the port hole but she wasn't buying it :blink:

All parts (knobs, screens etc...) are available through Beckson.
Your model should be 414 (4"x14")
beckson.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=28_4...350163324342deebf729

I see you have a 1989 model. Maybe you don't have Beckson.

How long did it take to do that one? Both sides or just the outside? or inside?

Didn't take long at all. Maybe 15 minute for each one. You wet sand with 1000 grit, again with 3000 grit and then use the buffer on a drill with the compound provided. The kit has everything included. 3M has a similar product.

I just did the outside but you could do the inside with just the buffer. I did this with one after I took the picture. There is a sealer/UV protector that comes with the kit but I found it left a bit of a haze.

Seems the kit that I have is not offered anymore based on the website. It was a few years old.

Here is what they offer now.

Well you certainly got good results. Great job! I'm surprised at how quick the process is.
