No, they will never clean up like the newer clear head lights. The 99-00 are that faded clear white plastic and will never be able to shine "clear" like the newer ones. The only way to get them to shine clear is to put headlights from a 01-04 superduty in place of pur 99's. I plan on putting my set in tomorrow.

you can take some rubbing compound and clear them up but they will never be like new.

Mothers aluminum polish works well on headlights as well. It's basically a rubbing compound.
