Default Thoughts on headlights...


I know someone already asked on how to clean the headlights, I saw the toothpaste idea, it actually worked pretty well. For the outside. Does anyone know if its possible to clean INSIDE the housing? would it do anything if I removed the housing and "swished" a little cleaner or something inside and let it drain? DOes anyone have any thoughts?

I was thinkin something like that I just didnt know if it would harm anything, you know? I already got rid of my junker vehicle, so I cant experiment on that [sm=headbang.gif]

Ive heard of people using transmission fluid to clean the inside of the lenses, and that it works great. But I digress, I have never done it myself, so I cant vouch for it.

Hahah okay well in that case, when I get the chance I'll start off with the soap and if that doesnt do a good job then I'll try traqnny fluid. So long as nothing happens that causes my headlights to turn into the firey eyes of hell [sm=badbadbad.gif]

FYI, you can also use toothepaste to mend scratched CDs. just rub the TP around the scratched area to take down the edges of the scratch.

I think that some use some whitening toothpaste on their car some months ago when they had hazed abit on the outside due to the weather. I heard that it cleans the outside real good.
