    meguairs plastx and a small buffer, be careful not to burn it though. if they are really cloudy, 2000 grit wetsand and buff with the plastx. works 4 me and over time hand apply the plastx

    search on here and you will find some details on how to shine them up...........wet sand is the answer. Start around 400 and work you way up. I will see if I can find some threads for you

    2 options, first wet sand them until you like them again or buy a cheap set of halos from egay and swap the lens on them. You would have to heat them to loosen the adhesive to swap them.

    for me: wetsand, mothers mag polish, zymol cleaner wax and lots of elbow grease worked best

    Headlights

    Just had my oil changed and Texas Oil Exchange has a lifetime guaranteed headlight restoration for $69.00 looks like a wetsand method but they allow you to bring it back if it doesnt stay clear.
