    I've heard of it, this is the first time I've ever seen it.

    Please don't tell me that us camaro guys are calling this a "modification" These kinds of things are what honduh guys call mods

























    But uhh, I kinda like it, where can I get more info on how to do this Seriously...

    well if i bought a foggy set i would have them sanded down to make them clear again assuming thats possible.

    yea thats my thought exactly. buy some foggy ones and save a little money but we will see. my buddy has his headlights done so I might steal his and try them on for looks.

    to make it easier on your self go buy "3M Headlight Lens Restoration System" from an Auto Parts store its VERY easy hook it up to a drill and do work.... i spent about 2 hours doing both of mine and i would have to say they were brand new..... mine looked just like yours!

    Cost me about $20

    This is about 2 months after i did mine! one thing u will want to do is put a wax over top to protect them after!

    my only fear with those kits is longevity. I dont wanna have to do it more than once and I know sanding/buffing really takes care or the issue.
