Default Tail Light Crazing / Cracking

The other day I noticed that the tail light lenses and the deck lid emblem on my Mustang are cracked/crazed for no known reason (to me anyway). Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem? Short of replacing light assemblies and tearing out the emblem is there an easy fix?

I have used Raxiom on my 2010 GT rear & 2014 CS front lights. Check American Muscle.

It's weird, the emblem is perfectly smooth outside, but I agree it looks like it was struck by something (hammer, bb, etc.) I can get light assemblies from LMR and AM for about the same price, $200+/- for the pair. The emblem is almost $100 depending where I look. I have seen them as low as $17 on eBay, but I don't use PayPal so its harder to hit those deals.

Yep, must have been hit with an object . I have never bought from LMR , but they have a good reputation. American Muscles customer service , i can say is excellent .
