Foggy headlights

The headlights on my car have become hazy and foggy over the years and have turned a little yellowish. Is there a way to make them look like new again or should I just buy new headlights?

Wet sand with 600-800 grit, then 1000, then 2000, then 3000 if you got it. Follow up with a headlight.compound, youl probably want to.use a power drill with a buffer pad. They sell em at walmart and autoparts stores. When your done, hey will look like new. But without that top.coating (the part that hazed and turned yellow) it will get sun damaged.faster. just use headlight cleaner compound whenever you wash n.detail your car. It will be easier to clean regularly.

Seems like a lot of work. If you have the money. I would say just spend the 100 bucks to get brand new headlights.

Not too bad. Ive done plenty. But i am the type that would prefer my own handywork to payin to get it done. Doesnt take too long, and you can probably get away with 600-1500-2000 and then speed buff it.
