I was wondering if i can wax the front lens with some sort of abrasive to make it clear instead of foggy looking again, and if so where can i get the stuff? if not, how much would it cost to buy new plastic lenses?

Some people have wet sanded their lenses with a high grit paper, and then used a rotary or orbital buffer with some glass polish to finish up. One side effect of doing this might be that you will sand off the UV coating on the outside of the lenses. You may want to consider putting something like XPel or Stonguard on the lenses to add back that UV layer, to prevent degradation of the plastic pieces in the lamp housing.

I have no idea how much new lenses are .. probably not cheap though.
