Well anyway I did mine with a kit from harbor freight (which I had a coupon for lol) and it came out pretty nice but I've seen people use used brake fluid to clear up the lenses and it did a pretty good job just be careful with your paint

A body shop guy told me one time,,if you use a polishing compound and then clear coat it will last..When you use it takes the protection coating on them or something like that..I know in georgia theres a place called certifit,,that sales the light assemblies a third of what a dealer wants..Body shops get theirs from there
