    I wasn't sure whether to post this is lighting or detailing so i posted it here. I've been wanting to clean the haze off my headlights and had a little time to kill last night, so I thought I'd give something a try. I got my cheap ass little polishing gizmo (from some cheap ass simonize scratch remover kit), loaded the pad up up regular old Crest tooth paste and went to work. Surprisingly it did pretty well. My driver's side is probably 85% clean and the passenger's is probably 70%. If i had something better to polish with they'd probably be over 95%. I took some pics and will post later if they are any good.

    there is a procedure people do, involves 1000 grit sandpaper, then 2000 grit, (both are used wet) and then a product called mcquires plastix, works wonders!

    Um, yeah, I know about that stuff. Thanks. However, as I said I was just killing time and I happened to have positive results. But thanks for the tip, you're the best in your row!! :thumbsup:
