    On most lamps you’ll be polishing for the rest of your life when they get bad when they get cloudy or hazed over really bad.

    What I’d highly recommend is using some 1500 grit sand paper and WET Sanding (use lots of water), rinsing the residue then repeat with some 2000 or 3000 grit to smooth it out. THEN Polish like hell to get it shiny and clear again.

    If found that just polishing or using one of those headlamp restore kits often doesn’t work. Plastic lenses only also of course.

    Would glass products such as Windex work for this?

    @KrazyAnub1s No, but Liquid Comet with a damp or wet rag works on some lights.

    @dodgechryslersucks Agree totally with the sandpaper.On really bad headlights I actually started out with 320 grit paper.Also it has to be Automotive sandpaper for wet sanding or it will just fall apart.
