Yes, I polished mine with paraffin oil. It is not perfect but better than it was!

Yep - just did mine last week.

First pass was a polish with Meguiar's Plastic-X and then the second pass was an application of Meguiar's Headlight Protectant.



I used some masking tape around the edges so as to avoid any paint damage.

since each side is held in place by 3 bolts I will probably just
remove them totally.

I used the 3Mô Headlight Lens Restoration System, 39008
on my headlights a couple of years ago and they still look good.

thanks, Rich
