Replacing Headlight Lenses

Wanted to get some opinions. I'm in need soon to have to replace the lenses on my SVT Focus. I have major yellowing of the lenses and buffing them doesn't seem to work anymore. I have the HID headlights and just want to replace the lenses. Does anyone have a good brand of aftermarket headlights i can take apart so that I can use the lens without having to transfer everything over? Thanks.

Look on Ebay for the cheapest set of new headlights you can find (or slightly used that you can try restoring the lenses again) and use those. As long as they are for an 00-04 Focus they'll fit.

Whatever you do don't buy some cheap ebay lights for the lenses. The lens is much worse quality than the factory ford lens. Look around for a like new set of factory ford lights and grab the lenses off of them. The mach and regular lights use the same exact lens.
