The lenses are plastic and will haze over time due to road conditions. Sand and grit gets thrown up by the vehicle in front of you and hits these plastic lenses at whatever speed you're driving. So normal use results in a sandblasted lens. I recommend a two step proceedure: 1. Get some Whink or CLR. Either of these products remove mineral and rust stains and deposits. This is the same stuff you can buy at any department or drug store for household use. Put a small amount on a terry rag and wipe down the lenses a couple of times. This will remove the imbedded deposits that have built up over time. Be careful not to get it on adjacent crome or paint and rinse well right after you use it. 2. Your local auto parts store likely sells Meguiar's PlastX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish. Get some and follow the directions. You can get by with just the PlastX but you'll spend a whole lot more time polishing than you will if you use the Whink or CLR first. Here is more from WikiAnswers contributors: * Hey I've sprayed my lamps with some clear coat spray paint, clear ok. A mild buffing compound and a buffing wheel. You can also buy a product called "Crystal View" to restore the headlight. You can purchase this product at Walmart, K-Mart or Advanced Auto Parts. You can also order it online at
