I fixed it for you. Rub some dot3 brake fluid on the lense with a terry towel. Use elbow gease and repeat several times. Towel will turn yellow. Lense will become clean and clear again. Cheapest mod ever.

Do not not forget your PPE, rubber gloves and saftey glasses is what I recommend while using the brake fluid.

For the headlight mod I assume? Between 200 and 170 or as low as your oven can be set. For about 10 to 15 minutes is what I did.

If you are doing the headlight mod on the 98 in your signature, it will not work as the entire headlight is the reflector.
