Anyone know if thses headlights are glass or plastic?

I've read on the MX-3 forums of people baking their headlights in the oven to melt the seal, make the lense easy to remove for cleaning.

Obviously plastic lenses will melt a bit!

Or have a look at this link about using a heat gun to melt the seal.

Also I've heard metal polish or an abrasive ploish like G3 is good for clearing yellowed headlights.
Currently in Mikey's garage:
