Tail lights on 328

Hi, I noticed the centre of my flicker lights (reverse light ) lenses are faded partially, how can I make it shine again (looks like from the inside)

This is the white/clear middle circle where the reverse lights shines through.

cheers
John

it's plastic so a plastic polish should help. if it's on the inside, where the texture is, i don't know if you can do anything. Thanks for making me notice it on mine.

I haven't tried it yet on my car, but the word on the street is to make a mixture of water, bleach, and rice. Pour the mix inside the tail light and swish it around. The rice provides enough abrasion to clean the inside. I'm not sure what ratio, but I'd dilute the bleach quite a lot.

For the outside, plastic polish and patience. They look amazing when finished.

hey guys, thanx for the insights, it was on the outside, the inside is clean, I tried any soap or cleaner - didn't work, I used a bit of polishing compound and it took it off after a bit of pressure rubbing.

my thumbs is sore, bummer...

its all good now !

hey bretm, interresting mixture ur mentioning there, coolstuff, luckally its not on the inside at all.
