Is there anywhere that sells just headlight plastic covers. Headlights not clear

Is there anywhere that sells just the plastic cover to headlights? I dont need the whole headlight as they are $250 each. My headlights look like trash as they are fogged up and not clear. I tried those headlight restoration kits and it clears them for like a day and not 100%.

Easy answer is no. Best thing you can do is wet sand them. Try a search on here there are plenty of threads on it. unless you buy new headlights you won't be able to get them to 100% though, sorry man. Hard truth of it. AND if you do wet sand em, you will have to do that every month or two to keep em lookin good.

its all good man, at least you converted to a big win now lol


YES! Depo FTMFW!! Seriously, Depo's are just as good (if not better) as OEM. If you invested in them ( which should not be $250) and then take care of em you would be set. In reality thats probably the only way to get back to 100%. And if you ask me its well worth it, best mod I've done to my lude so far.

you can wet sand em and get them back to 95 percent...just use a good wax on them everyother month to keep the yellow from coming back....exactly what i did 2 years ago and they still look good...even with salty winters...just find the thread
