Lights

I can't tell what happened to my headlight lenses. They don't look scratched. What do you guys think happened?

Same with mine.
It's a build up on the inside of the headlight that when taken apart can easily be wiped off.

No, not at all what he said, that's the clearcoat peeling off. Look up how to sand down headlights then spray a nice new coat of clearcoat on them.

I agree, look it up and you will see how to do it but if you go to a local parts store like say auto zone, etc you will find that turtle wax, 3m, etc has a kit already made up with everything to need to do it with. Its called headlight restore made my turtle wax, it works dont get me wrong but on yours might take two kits per head light esp the right side. FYI, dont get the kit that does it on the drill, you will be sorry later only get the kit that allows you to do it by hand just a opinion though. It worked for me at least, good luck.

Mine was doing the same thing when I bought her.I ended up using a 3m kit And bought some extra 800 and 1k grit sandpaper it took me about an hour for each lens but they turned out good . Just pull them out of the car when you do them and when you are finished give then a good waxing and it will last a while.
