I know there are many ways people suggested to shine up your headlights, however i've found my way how to clean them up.
1. Get the "methylated spirits"(i got one from Coles)
2. Get one spunge called "Scotch Brite" (also from Coles)[this spunge is designed to remove hard stains, as they show on tv]
3.If you don't have any polish then get one. I used Polyglaze liquid polish.
And now get to work...
Get the spunge put some methylated spirits on it and rub the headlight, continue until you see that brown stuff is not coming off anymore. Clean off the white residue that's been created by this process. The cleaning process has left the plastic on the head light dull looking(no gloss), hence the need for the polish. Use the polish to polish the just cleaned surface.
And here you are have a look at it now and you'll say WOW! as i did.
However, the effectiveness of this process largely depends on the state of the inside of the head lights.
Mine are pretty good thus i've achieved a very good result.

jus do what i did, pull the light apart, and then buff the inside aswell as the outside, comes up a million bucks. also i dont have the problem of the high beam lights going dull as i have glass ones. my2cents

Hi guys, I'm assuming the After shot posted by Luke has involved pulling the headlight apart.
Is it a real mission to do this and get it back together.
I think I've read somewhere ages ago that Soarer headlights were prone to getting moisture inside. Is this right and if so, is there a trick to making them moisture proof, especially if you have to pull them apart to clean the reflector?
One other question, this time regarding taillights. A mate has water in one of his taillights and for the life of me I couldn't get the thing apart. Has anyone else had this problem (water in the unit) and how did you solve it?

Yep I got water in my tail-lights as well...(condensation from living in the tropics,beside the usual cyclone or two)at the end of the wet season usually remove from the car and just use a hairdryer to get the excess out..

I've cleaned mine which were quite bad with T-Cut then A-plan triple wax polish 100% better, just got to do the insides, as they have condensation in them, but that can wait till next year, as it's too cold here at the moment.
