Dull Headlight Lenses

Anyone know the manufacturer and part number for headlight lenses on a 2001 Georgie Boy Cruisemaster? Mine are dull and need replacing.

Go buy a Mothers headlight restoration kit at your local parts store. Follow the directions. Works wonders

Can you give me a part number off the unit? You can google it. It is likely one made for a different vehicle. I bought mine off eBay. Mine were made for a 2002 Lincoln Navigator. About $80.00 US ea. Came with all bulbs.

Walmart auto center will polish them for around $40. They restored the headlights on a PT Cruiser, they looked brand new after they were done.

I used the Mothers headlight restorer. I do need to use it a couple of times a year, but I looked at the effort to change the headlight assembly (easily a couple of hours on my rig), the cost for new ones (about $120 for the pair), and compared it to the 5 minutes it takes to polish them, and I will just keep buffing them.

Google the part number, then buy off e-bay motors. Mine still look new, but I can get replacements there for under $70 for a pair, incl bulbs. The refinishing is only good for about a year, then you are back to the same thing. If you want a temporary job, you can do that with polishing toothpaste and a damp paper towel, something you already have, maybe $0.05!

The part number is on your headlight on the lens, write that down, then goggle it and you will find out what car or truck it was manufactured for. Ebay has dot approved headlights and are very reasonable. If you go this route save your mounting bracket, your replacement may differ.

Mavric65,
I am impressed with the results of your sanding and clear coating on the headlight lenses. To provide the best results, what grit sand paper do you start with and what is the final grit prior to clear coating with ureathane.

Thanks for the information.

Jack

There are inexpensive wet sandpaper kits available that range from about 400 to 12,000 grit that do an excellent job. Hand work, but this is usually a more consistent finish than the foam balls on a drill. Takes longer, but I have been much more satisfied with this technique than the easy stuff. Clear coat extends the life of the job then. I spent year's around helicopter "bubble polish"' and learned that there is no good easy way, but that is just an opinion.

I start with 400 grit paper and end with 600 grit then clean with a wax and grease remover clenaer then i apply two coats of clear ... I have done my own lenses on my old coach and they still looked great after 4 years when i sold it

I used the Mothers on my daughter's Corolla. Yellow opaque turned nearly-new clear in about 10 minutes.

I have experimented variious methods of returning shine to my rv lenses for several years.
The best so far is the orange Goop hand cleaner !
It has just enough abrasive properties to take off oxidation. Try It ! You will be amazed.

Many thanks to all that replied. I will try the polishing and also look for the part numbers on the lense as well.
