    Hey fellow enthusiasts. Just wondering if anyone has used a headlight restorer on the third brake light on rear of the cab. My 13” is up there in miles (98k) and the light looks yellowish/dingy. I’ve never used a headlight restorer on anything but my headlights. I’ll try to post a photo of the light tomorrow morning. I was thinking about putting chemical guys headlight restore and protect. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks

    I cleaned mine up with my Griots G8 polisher and some Rupes polish. Cleaned up nice, I did not re-coat it as it lives in the garage about 98% of the time.

    Yeah I think garaging my truck would be best, but my garage is already full. The main issue is the sun sets directly on my brake light everyday where I park.
