before buying any polishes etc, try using regular toothpaste. Try it first and see if it works. i have the same problem too. But havent tried it out yet.

Anyone know what it is about toothpaste? If it is floride I'll buy paste high in floride, but if it isnt I'll buy the cheapest crappiest toothpaste there is. Anyone know?

^^^ i think i read somewhere that they used just regular toothpaste. So just buy the cheapest one you could find, and try it.

do a search, there are many variations on how to do this from baking in an oven to seperate the shell to using aluminium wheel polish. I like that one best, first aluminium polish then cleaner wax. You can toothpaste it later for minty fresh.

I think you set your oven to 250 degrees and place your headlight on a cookie sheet for about 8-9 minutes. (I dunno, do a search and you will get the answer)

And then you take a razor and cut the glue that holds them together.
