When I was Applying the stuff, I didn't noticed it took stuff off till I stepped back. I did the passenger side first, and looked at the driver's side and said man... I didn't know it was that yellow. It cleans off more stuff the more you use it. A foam applicator pad works good, and something more abrasive will work better, it just doesn't leave it as clear. I haven't tried it on the inside, but I'm thinking it'll work even better if you take it off and clean it. A lot of the stuff is from the outside, but if you have headlights that get moisture in them, they'll get yellowed on the inside as well. Also, feel the texture of the headlight before and after you apply it, it feels like it's been wet sanded, well... probably cause that's basically what it does. For a smoother surface, like if your cleaning a scratched cd, if you use your finger instead of a foam pad or cotton hand towel, you don't scratch the surface of the cd from applying, and you end up with a lot fewer scratches, but the deep ones are pretty much impossible to get out (i know, I've tried, and the only way to fix it is fill in the scratches, but I don't know what to use to fill them in yet... clear paint? super glue?). Good luck with the grille blocking though.

I did a 5 min grille block before I read this cause I was leaving to get some stuff and fill up the tank. I used clear tape and saran wrap though, which actually didn't stretch that bad from the wind. And it helped butt loads. I took pix on my phone, but don't have signal to send them yet, So I'll wait till tomorrow.
