why are the headlight covers looking so hazy? Perhaps you should offer the polishing service as well.

what are you talking about?
They are not hazy, that's a light reflection. I always buff and polish every set of headlights I work on.

Quick question....is it ok to wipe the inside of the clear plastic headlight cover with a microfiber towel ? I hear that there's a coating on there that prevents fogging? If this is true then what is the best way to clean it? I got some fingerprint smudges on there that I wanna get off but i don't want to remove the coating.

I remember when I did mine that I wiped them out with a microfiber just so no dust got locked in. I didn't use any cleaners though. It didn't seem to affect the coating.

Wiping with a towel won't give you condensation problems. Not properly sealing the lights back up afterwards will. This happened to me, I had to buy a new Hid bulb and reseal with the 3m windo weld ribbon sealer
