    Maybe so, but he said not to use the alcohol on plastic....safer to use the white vinegar.
    He also said to use straight distilled water as well and that would work. The vinegar just makes it alittle more effective.

    Everyone here seems to have used the alcohol with no problems. That was just his view as he's been cleaning glass and plexiglass for 18 years now.

    Anyway, my lenses came out like new, so I am very glad I did it. I am also sort of a clean a holic, so those fogged lights really almost made me lose sleep...lol.....well almost

    Re: Another Head light fog question

    After wet sanding and buffing the exterior with no results really, I attempted this method. At first, just warm distilled water, but could still see the film. Drained, and repeated, but added a capful of alcohol. Drain, repeat, this time, with distilled water, and a little bit of windex. Drained, and now letting them dry, but doesn't look like this method helped much. I can still see a little film (clear) not yellow, but film none the less in some spots. They may look better after drying, but for now, seems like I've wasted an hour of my life...

    Also, I didn't have a ballast (non hid), so removal was clear cut and simple. If I still can't see results after they dry, I'm going aftermarket...

    Also, since my version is ballast free, what type of bulbs are the best? I want a radiant white look, not the cheesy looking blue... any suggestions?

    Was thinking about ordering these, but instead of black housing (which would look super sick on a blk lade), the chrome housing instead...

    Anyone running these? If so, how do you like them?

    I don't have projection headlights on my truck but I do have them on my car and LOVE them

    I don't like the glare they produce but man the light path is awesome nothing but smooth light from one side of the road to the other

    Super sharp cut off prefect for hid or led bulbs

    Go for it I think you will enjoy them
    I plan on changing my truck to projection as my passenger side housing is showing uv damage( going to try turtle wax polish first)
