Question: Size & Grit
What is the size & grit of each sanding disc used to restore headlights using the Delta Kits professional headlight restoration system?
For most vehicles, Delta Kits recommends the following 3” sanding discs:
- 320 Grit Sanding Disc
- 500 Grit Sanding Disc
- 800 Grit Sanding Disc
- 1200 Grit Sanding Disc
- 1500 Grit Sanding Disc
After sanding the headlight, it is polished with a 3000 grit polishing disc. If the damage is very severe or if the factory coating is excessively difficult to remove, it may be necessary to use a 180 grit disc before the 320 discs.
