I used the one from Walmart that comes in a silver pouch for just under $20. I pulled the headlamp housings from our car and worked inside over the kitchen sink. I was sceptical, but the results look great. I don't think you'll be sorry. Good luck, HarveyP

Ok, one year later and I now have clear headlamps. Here is how I did it. Don't worry it didn't take a year, but, it did take a year for me to find that "Round Tuit"

I bought 800, 1000, 1500, and 2000 grit wet sandpaper. I removed the headlamps and started with the 800 moving up to the 2000 grit always keeping the lenses wet. This took me about 45 minutes to one hour per lense, with some rests beteween the right and left arm workouts . I finished up with Meguires plastic polish and Mothers small foam polishing ball....same one I used on the wheels, and some help from Patty as the lense holder . Sorry I didn't take before and after pictures, but the lenses had heavy, deep cracks, and did come out looking brand new.

Cost was about $5.00 for the sand paper and I already had the plastic polish and the Mothers foam ball. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

What's not mentioned here is that a lot of the problem w/really bad lenses, is road rash. That's why, in extreme cases, this sanding process is necessary before the polishing process. Robbie

I have the same problem with the headlights on my car. I use Brasso brass polish. It costs about $2 a bottle and it only takes a few minutes with a damp cloth.

I swore I'd never touch another bottle of that stuff after 6/9/69! (Discharge date from US Army.) So far I haven't!!!

Someone on another post reagrding this topic suggested Acetone. I was concerned that I could do more damage than good by doing this but I tested it on an old Ford headlight that I had in the garage and it worked. I just did it on the headlights of my 1998 Accord and they look like new. Just use acetone on a clean cloth and wipe. Keep using a clean area of the cloth and reapply acetone until the lense is clean. I am going to do the MH next.

I used the Crystal View on my motorcoach headlights, and the lights look like new. It is suppose to be a one time and last for a lifetime. I have cleaned and waxed every six months and always clouded over again. I love the Crystal View and it takes less than 20 minutes to do both headlights. Was skeptical but impressed

I have done this. Here is a liknk to my website Headlight Refurb



It should be noted that I have done this a couple of times on these headlights (my 97 Honda CRV toad) so the before and after pictures really don't show the improvement.
