    Went to Tire Kingdom to ask them about my headlights. They told me that they are too foggy and need to be cleaned. I asked them if the covers just need to be replaced or what but they told me they just needed to be cleaned with a "chemical" they have. I asked autozone and they said they don't carry that acid.

    Tire Kingdom wanted to charge me 50 bucks to clean em so that certainly wasn't going to happen. Is there any way i can get ahold of this mysterious cleaning product and do it myself?

    Would normal ammonia or some acid wash work? :sad2:

    a bit of rubbing compound/plastic polish should do the job, if its really bad then you would wet sand it with 1500 first

    Then 2000, 2500 and 3000...

    Otherwise it will be a bitch to polish out the wetsanding scratches by hand...or even machine.
