    its really like they are very small cracks. I have no freaking idea what caused them I always take extreme caution when Im washing it. I have heard the same thing but if i f@#$ it up Im out a headlight.

    It's the plastic breaking down from a lot of UV light exposure from the sun. You've got a '99 and I suppose it has been outside most all the time, so you're due for new headlights. You could try the wet sanding then polishing to make them last a little longer, but you're going to have to replace them before long.

    Once their cracking it's all over. Mine did the same thing, 1500 and 2000 wouldn't help a bit. So I bought some VHT Niteshade spray paint and took care of it that way.
