I think the bugs lights are past restoring. From what i can see the inside of the lenses are degraded, its really letting the car down at the moment.

But im willing to try a few inexpensive ways to try bring them back. Is anyone restoring headlights for cheap or has anyone the ebay kits laying about that i could have a go of?

Bug and Hawk lights seem to suffer this issue more than any other model.

Lights off the car. Drill bit. Cotton wool. White spirits.

Stick the cotton wool to the bit and dip in the spirits and then slow speed on the drill polish up the inside.

Toothpaste and a polishing cloth for the outside.

Or send them to diesel Tom and he'll do them.

3 coats of lacquer after they're done and they'll stay clear or wrap them in clear 3M.
