overspray like paint? confused if you need to get inside the headlight you're going to have to take it apart...that would explain why Toyota won't touch it. it won't be too hard at all to open up your headlights and clean them out as long as you're careful.

if it's inside, you have to open it..
as for the outside, maybe claybar and a glaze/compound will take off that crap

If it's inside, open them up, and might as well paint them while you're at it. Though overspray sounds like it's on the top.
