Knowledge Base - How To:- Head light restoration
Are you headlights yellow? scratched? Look like dog turd?
Some very useful information to bring your tired headlights back to life... Sadly enough I can't take credit for it.

The lights were removed and using a heat gun working around the glue, the lights were slowly disassembled. Doing this gave access to polish the inside of the light unit, whilst giving the option to paint the inside of the light unit body colour or to whatever colour you desire.
