Anybody know how to care for headlights that have the clear plastic shells around them? My wife has an '01 Grand Am, and the shell is starting to look kind of cloudy....not crystal clear anymore. Any way to reverse this or keep it from happening? I don't want to have to replace the whole headlight just to get clear lenses again, but I don't know if the cloudiness I'm seeing can be fixed. I have some plexus I need to try on them, but I don't know if it'll do anything at this point. Any ideas??

Mustangs of the early 90's and up had this really bad...fogged out and people learned how to pull the housings apart really fast.
I use the oven method to crack the glue myself...somelike....some dont....matter of prefernce there.
Hmmm... All the Mustangs I've had were faded on the outside. Here's what I did on a 92 5.0 Mustang with really faded headlights. I used some 1500 grit wet/dry sand paper with a lot of water and sanded until smooth, followed by some 2000 grit wet/dry sand paper witha lot of water and sanded until smooth. Then I use a rotary buffer with some Meguaires (sp) #2 followed with some #7 or 9. Same basic procedure for wet sanding the paint. When I was done those things looked better than new.
