headlight question

is there anything i can do to clean my headlights? i dont really know how do describe it but the outsides are rough to the touch, and kind of a dirty clear in spots. i think it would make my car look 100% better but i cant really justify buying new ones. thanks in advance.

What kind of car?

Sounds like the protective film on your headlights is getting pitted and coming off. You may need to wet sad them then buff them.

yeah, polish the headlights, but then they will just yellow quickly agian, so maybe after you polish spray them with some clear, or have a shop do it, to get something to protect the lense and keep it from discoloring agian.

Looking forward to the road that lies ahead...We enjoy reflecting upon past roads traveled, reliving our adventures through photographs taken and stories penned...Though, it's that next road that drives us onward...that next journey...And who knows where it'll lead?
