Hey,

Does anyone know if there is a way to polish or clean the yellow crap off your headlights? It's really pissing me off, lights aren't as bright as they could be and it makes my car look more dated.

I heard it can be done, can someone shed some light on this? :lol:

It's an ED falcon, i've had a closer look and it appears as though most of the stuff is on the inside of the lens. I'll have to take the lights apart on the weekend and see if i can polish them up, i'm not too keen about taking to them with wet and dry paper like the link suggests in an earlier post. i was thinking i might try one of those 'mag polishes' that are slightly abraisive and then hit it with some polish or something. Thanks for the help so far.
