    The headlight restoration kit is a good idea. The headlight is coated on the outside with a UV coating. The coating in time fades or yellows. The inside of the headlight is fine, do not touch it.

    I used chrome cleaner on mine. I've heard toothpaste, Brasso also work, or go to an auto parts store and buy a kit for this purpose for a lot more money.

    I have heard of taking the light assembly completely out and putting vinegar in it and shaking it around. Although i've never tried it.
