    I'm with Gary, turf them and buy new ones. Even after all the time and money spent they will never look as good and improve the look of your vehicle like new ones.

    I actually bought a 3 or 4 stage Turtle Wax product that cleans up head lights and it worked AMAZING. I would recommend it to anyone that needs to fix their headlights

    When I need to clean my headlights on my Grand Am I simply take them off and use "Jewelers Rouge" and a buffing pad attached to my bench grinder.
    The buffing pad is the orange pad used for polishing Aluminum wheels.
    I get the stuff at any of the local truck stops.

    You need to keep an eye on the heat as you could melt the lens but it works great and it only takes me 5 - 10 minutes per lens.

    I used this this past weekend on my Hyundai headlights and it worked great.

    After using this stuff your lights look brand new.
