    Hey guys,
    Just signed back up to the new board and was curious if anybody else is having this problem (or has a simple solution)...

    I'm assigned one of the newer styled Volvo with the funky styled headlight covers. The trucks in good shape but 500000 + miles (just got it back from an "A" inspection) and countless trips down sandy highways have really done a number on the headlight covers. They're so scratched and hazed over that night-time driving has become quite an adventure. I currently have to run the high beams full time just to get around.

    After countless write-ups and complaining,TM states he can't swing new covers right now. I thought it would be repaired during the A inspec but no dice there. Is there a simple, quick repair that a lowly driver can do to get by. We've got about 3-4 other local trucks with the same problem at our terminal

    Have it sent to CLT or ATL for buffing. Make sure they buff the little lens inside also.

    you can buy kits at most auto parts stores to restore lenses,unsure if they really work but might be worth a try.
