Wink Headlights

I'd Like To Shine The Headlight Covers Clean To A Clear Finish Because It's Just Not Bright Enough.
Any "do It Yourself" Ideas?

Cool

Cleaning the lenses are easy. it just takes the right products, a little know how and some elbow grease. In this forum, Exterior, go to about the second or third page and look for the title" Headlight Problem", by Gwamo. In there you will find a brief description on how to clean the lenses and a web site for a good set of bulbs!! Good Luck!!

These headlights were "Yuke" until I cleaned them. Just take your time, use the steps, and have fun!! Start with a good cleaner and a mineral spirit, alot of elbow grease or palm orbital, then a polish and wax. It's a lttle more involved that that, but can be fun!!

At least on the bright side Mike didn't bust out anything among the lines of "I don't shut up, I grow up..."
