    badly hazed aftermarket headlights

    I bought a set of projectors for my magnum about 3 years ago. Here recently they looked really bad so I ended up sanding and polishing them. What a difference.

    You need to really hit it with a agressive cutting compound + a foam pad to get it clear and shiny.
