Hey AL, Question on cloudy older head lights....

Post by Tom19176 »

AL, since you are the answer man, I gave my son my low milage 2000 Sonota, but the head lights are a bit cloudy on the lens. I saw an ad for some "as seen on TV" wipes that claim to clear it up, but I wondered if you knew any method that works well to restore them to a clear look?

Most auto parts stores sell a lens polish that works pretty good. I have no idea about the wipes your talking about.

Let me know how the Harbor Freight one works as there is one of their stores by me! The wipes are "as seen on TV" and who knows if they work....The buffer looks better. I figured AL might have a secret method...lol....I will look in the auto stores also...Thanks to the both of you!

Without trying any, I'll assume most such products are similar :idea:
