    Vehicle Permit

    YEs buddy, there is a permit called BLUE PERMIT !!! i have checked that out but it won't help you that much... Normally you can not import a car older than 3 years but with this blue permit you can import a can which is not older than 5 years. but the customes duty will not be exempted but your FOB value will be less when the car beocming 5 years old. i am not discouraging you but even i tried. Then One of my friends made below points to me. just have a thought about it. 1. you are going to import a vehical which you have not seen oe tested by your self - So the condition of the vehicle could be ????? aftre five years. 2 . All the troubles that you may have to go thru if you are going to clear the vehicle from colombo Port. 3 . Aftre all these things you may save 200,000/- LKR comparing to the market price. 4. if you are buying from the open market you can check the vehicle and do any test dirve or what ever it is for your saisfaction. These are my personal thoughts and any of you frined have reall import under the blue permit even i would like to hear.

    Headlamp Cleaning

    Just found the below from the net. hope this might be usefull. 1. 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper: If your lenses are only lightly pitted, then skip this and go to 800. However, if yours are deeply pitted like mine were, I would suggest using 400 first. 2. 800 grit wet/dry sandpaper 3. 1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper: maybe a little overkill, but I used it because it came in a set of assorted sandpaper purchased from Autozone. 4. 1500 grit wet/dry sandpaper: Overkill again, but it worked for me 5. 2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper: VERY IMPORTANT! I thought I could get away with just 1500, but I had to go and purchase 2000 to get rid of a lot of the larger scrapes. 6. Turtle wax: Really, any wax or even polish will do, but this is what I had handy. 7. Meguiars Chanuba wax: A harder shell to go on top 8. Some sort of other protectant: I ignored this step as I am installing Rockblockers tommorow, but you need somesort of clear coat to protect the shine. Optional: Buffer, which I used and helped shine up the lenses. Directions 1. Clean off the lens thoroughly with Windex or other glass cleaner. I then used rubbing alchohol to get rid of any remaining contaminants. 2. Begin wet sanding with either 400 or 800 grit sandpaper, depending on how deeply pitted your lamps are. For those of you who do not know the process of wet sanding, your goal is to keep the paper and surface wet at all times. This way, all the things you are rubbing off run off instead of sticking to the surface. I had the faucet running lightly the whole time I was doing it and every 15-20sec would put the paper under it and occasionally wash off the lens. You should begin to see the water turn white from the clearcoat/plastic you are rubbing off. Furthermore, your lens should start to look very scratched up from the sandpaper, but don't worry this will go away. 3. Continue process with 800, 1000, and 1500 grit sandpaper spending aroudnd the same amount of time on each grit (~5-7min) 4. Continue same process with 2000 grit, except be VERY thorough this time. I spent 10-15 min per lens at this level to remove the last imperfections. Do not worry if even after this level, it still looks very scratched up as that is how it should. 5. Clean the lens VERY WELL. I used windex, soft scrub, and finally rubbing alchohol to get all the particles off. It should look slightly clearer after this step. If you have a buffer, buff the surface after you clean it. 6. Apply turtle (or other hard-shell) wax. Cover the surface so it is almost entirely covered and let dry COMPLETELY. Wipe clean, and you will see how great your lens is going to look. 7. Apply Meguiars chanuba wax (or other final-step wax) in a similar meathod, and after dry wipe clean. Now you will see how great your new light looks! 8. Buff if you have a buffer to remove any final scratches. 9. Apply protectant or rockblocker. I am not entirely sure this step is neccecary, as other things I have read ignored this step. I'll update after I drive a few days without rockblockers and take the car to the wash once. Now you have nice, new looking head/foglamp lenses without the $300 price tag. There will still be some of the deep imprefections left, but they will feel smooth to the touch and look much better. After: I also did the headlamps, but did them while on the car. The method is the same, just in done while on the car. I protected the bumper with cloth and tape just to make cleanup easier.
