    So long story short I ordered recon headlights about a month ago and they had finger prints in them with some hazy dust. After a month of back and forth, being told to field destroy them and sent a new set today they have contamination in the paint of both with some dust/ haze.

    So...with that being said what should I do:
    -Send back and get money back.
    -Send back for another set.
    -Take insides from first set which where good (no contamination and cleanable finger prints.) then put them in the second set and try an clean the inside of the lense.
