Default This is a cool trick....

I just tried something today and it worked. My headlights were a little hazy and I'm getting another set from Mike. So I said I'm going to try something....I took clear coat in a bum can and sprayed them with a light coat. All I did is clean them with soap and water. I couldn't believe the results

Before.



After.

have you tried a rubbing compound on them? heard toothpaste can be used as a good cutting polish to help clear them up

Soft scrub works too. You can use it on glass to take off mineral deposits too...

I heard the toothpaste trick. I go a headlight restore kit for 20 bucks that works wonders.
