ive got standard condensation like most headlights get but this is different, as its like a stain left from the laminx. im just not sure why it cant simply be cut and polished out !Aye, is it on the inside? You complained about it being wet in side, could it be road water/salt and it's cloudy?
i get what your saying about the mk1-2 but these don't really suffer from that problem as there from the new generation of plastic.A milky film would sometimes develop on the inside of early Golf headlights.
This was caused by replacing bulbs, the natural grease on fingers would get left on metal parts of the bulb, this would burn off to create the milky film, worst affected is shallow headlight enclosures - Mk1 & 2 inner lights like to do this.
Yours does look like an extreme version of this.
I don't know the set up of your lights, looks like they have been apart to be joey'd, did they get re-assembled with bare hands?
that's kool, i appreciate the help anyway. think im just going to live with it for now and if it ever really bothers me i will change out the headlight.Don't really know what to suggest.
In all events sanding and polishing will always remove the top layer of dead plastic
Looks like this isn't your problem, you don't seem to have a layer of dead plastic.
Can't understand why lamin X would create this issue on plastic either.
I removed laminx off my R32 headlights , that laminx was over 10years, maybe 14 years on my car. Looked like new when I took them off, but R32 uses glass not plastic.
I stuck lamin X stuff on my 2002 Fabia headlights and that still looked fab after 12 years. No fogginess, but pitting and wear and tear
.maybe you do have a problem inside the lens even though it follows the lamin X cut out.
Wotever , can't think of any other solutions to remedy as you've already cut and polished to various extents. And confirmed water doesn't change the look, so it really can only be the insides
