Grey Market Euros

Murrey, I would recommend do as most us have or intend doing; Replace your headlight assembly with new Euros.
There has always been the desire to clean the reflector and I've never heard of it being done successfully.
The reflective coating is a bright metal; typically aluminum or tungsten.
It is applied by vapor depositing in a vacuum chamber via an Electron Beam Vaporizer.
In the past the mere touching of the bright surface created a dulled spot and trying to clean the surface lessend the reflectivity.
There may be others on The Forum who can relate to the latest method.
If you intend to disassemble the light body, take head about the retaining clips being brittle and heat them using a hot air gun or at least a hair drier.
