Default Better 2005 f350 headlights

The previous owner changed out the headlights for ones that are tinted and dont put out a lot of light. It appears that that they also sprayed them with something that is now crusty.

I think Id rather spend money on replacements rather than the polishing kits to try to make mine better. Not sure they would ever put out good light

Any recommendations on replacements. Not looking to spend a fortune.

Not sure what they would cost but best bet is to go to the Ford dealership and buy new ones.

My 16yo wanted to try to polish the headlights.

We started with 320 on a 5 wheel. Then 400 wet sand.

Then some 7$ headlight polish from the solar store in a 5 cloth wheel

Not too bad
