just to mention, i tryed the sanding and cut and polish, but with my lights, the cut and polish didn't do jack, like the lights are still not clear ie cut and polish didn't give it a clear nice and shiny coat (still milky and looks like when u finished sanding but havn't polished).

Is there any other things needed to be done? or have i missed out on something? Maybe try and special product to give it that clear coat and to make the lense look shiny? any help is appreciated...

Yeah I used that plastic polish everyone talks about, some expensive stuff that was used on planes or something, lol.

Ah well, I'll buy some new ones one day if I ever get HID.
