    Question Faded/Cloudy Headlight case

    Anyone got any Ideas how i can sort out a clouded, yellowing headlight case?....the inner chrome is fine..but the perspex plastic is a manky yellowy colour and my other light is lovely and clear?

    I have taken the case out before..but was unsure how to crack the front pastic away from the back shell??

    I only seen new light casings for £40 green queens off flea bay!

    Any ideas...

    go to a scrappy and replace the whole thing, you can pick em up for £10 at the right place, or there was someone in the forsale selling both lights for £20

    If it is just surface discolouration then something like Meguiars PlastX will likely sort it out, even the ScratchX is mild enough if you ask me and sorted mine old headlights out a year or so back.
