Great write up! I would add that it is a good idea to add a good quality sealant or coating to the headlights once they are corrected. This will help prevent them from fogging back up too quickly.

If you don't have the cutting compound, you can try toothpaste! Just did it to my gf's Pt Cruiser, and damn, they look brand new! Just another input is all

Definetly trying this soon. What exact product am I to coat the lens with after this step?

If you start with a more aggressive abrasive, it goes a whole lot faster.
I wet sand starting with 1000 grit, then 1500, then 2000.....then a liquid or paste as shown in the pics above.

That is a great write up! I will have to do this to my car. They aren't terrible but I am sure it is easier to do when there is less damage.
My only question is, will doing this remove the "tint" from the SVT headlights? I dunno if that is a coating on the lens or if it is part of the plastic.

also, suggest putting some kind of protectant over the headlights or, they will just haze back over. something like lamin-x or what i did, use 50/50 mix of spar urethane and mineral spirits and put several coats over the housing.
