You can get a new set (not just the lenses) from Sewell for around $550.

My headlights were hazy and considered buying new headlights, but I followed a DIY posted in the details forum section that came out pretty good -- I used power tool (Porter Cable) for polishing; it's probably very difficult to hand polish with any restoration kit. I also apply a "sealant" after each car wash and the lens has been good so far after 2 months.

I also found a permanent sealant solution that you can DIY and mix fairly cheaply, but I haven't tried it yet. Of course if your hazing is from the inside these steps probably won't help.

Hey Flat... if you want clear lenses, get STI-R lenses from TheRetrofitSource. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/com...l#.Uu2pLnkhHW0

Looking at your earlier posts... that haze sure looks like it is on the inside; not the outside. The tool who had my '06 350 wrecked the sealing in my headlights which was what prompted me to start all of my headlight mods.

When I did my clear lens swap /spacer mod, I sanded and sealed the inside plastic as well as the outside, then used Oci Butyl rubber to re-seal them properly http://www.theretrofitsource.com/acc...l#.Uu2ppXkhHW0

Since I did this; I haven't had the smallest drop of moisture since!
