Well,

I've tried doing it today. Only done 1 headlight. What do people recommend when it comes to glue ? I've seen people say Evo-Grip but didn't find it

What do you guys think ?

Trained in what ?

Staff: "What are you using the sealant for ?"
Me: "Re-seal my car's headlights"
Staff: "Ok, I'll ask someone else" *Runs away"

Well what you save from not buying coffee maybe you could put it in a piggy bank and in 10 years you would have enough

These ones I bought them from Paddy, so I have the one that are one the car, but they're originals.You should buy a original set, and DIY it. It is kinda frustrating but rewarding once they're ready.

Thanks Dan, I went with Evo-Stik wet grip in the end. Now waiting for it to dry up, then "abuse" them a bit, to see if they hold up.
