try to fix before you replace


i agree with thomas. the haze that you see is called milk. happens from the light getting to it over the years. what you need to do is actually polish/sand past this haze then polish the surface out to clear.

micro-surface has kits that is perfect for this. i've personally tried simichrome and various other polishes but they just don't take enough surface fast enough. micro has small kits under 20$ to do this with. you can also call them and get the skinny on their stuff.

just a side note. we polish welding helmets lenses and other plastics at work all the time. the trick is not taking too much off and over polishing.

good luck
Thanks Much!
