sounds like oxidation. i had the same thing. meguairs(sp?) plastix (sp?) will get rid of that and make them look brand new.

All in all, it probably took just 2 days. 1 day to take them apart, clean and paint, the 2nd day to put them back together... but the thing is, i was too excited to start so i took them apart without having all the necessary supplies, like paint.. But then when the paint came it was done in no time at all.

They're generic projectors. They worked fine for me... no problems really.. i think one of the led's has a bad connection tho...
I still have them and i wanna get rid of those too.
