LF: shop for custom headlights

i have a 97rl that im putting workon
yesterday i did a projector retrofit ad they look great inside the housing but i am not satisfied with the output at all, almost no light onto the ground ahead of me and i belive this is being caused by the stock "texture in the headlight.
so my question would be are their any shops that would be able to clear the plastic housing to be clear,
ive seen it done on other cars, and unfortunatly i cant find aftermarket products for this modification, any help is appreciated.

just for clariication my headlight curretly has simmal stock markings like this:

and i want them to be like this:

thanks again.

DIY, I did something similar to you with my old headlights x projectors. start with few hundred grit sand paper > 1000 > 1500 > 2000. then 3m headlight repair/ polish for final buffing into a clear lens.

but you need lots of time and patience. expect a few hours of work per side.

For what it's worth, you may be able to find Ebay headlights with clear lenses.

They're generally not very good, but they may be better than ones that are sanded down.

*Edit: nm, looks like there aren't any
