    im happy with the results, took me a couple hours to do and a couple days to take off the headlights, about an hour to put them back in :)

    money spent - about $20-$30

    looks 1000x better good work. What all did you do to them to get them fixed b/c my friend is having a big problem with one headlight leaking water.

    dont know what to do about the INSIDE except poor CLR or something in it and shake it up, poor it out and rinse it. Let it dry.
    Then silicone around the edges of the lense which is attached to the headlight bracket and put them back in. Might work, might not but worth a try

    You can also buy new headligths for a 5.0 from ford but there like $100 each headlight, it will cost $500 to get the whole new headlight assembly.
    (headlights, corners and inners) but they will be mint.

    also other option is a scrap yard

    I would just hunt through junk yards, I am going this weekend for a power window motor and maybe some old rims, the five point pony rims off a 5.0 or something. Who knows what I will find, maybe a 302 engine.

    Nice man. How'd you do it? Sandpaper+water, or something different? I took the lazy way out when I did my Stang, just put nail polish remover on them. Works well and only takes a few minutes, but mine weren't all that bad so it didn't have as drastic of an effect as yours did. :wink:

    lots of water and sandpaper, started from 400 and worked up to 2000 grit and then polished them with autosol, took a while but its worth it
