Re: Headlight plastic

The fella's right, you need them buffed.
The clouding you have cant be 'cleaned' off in the normal sense

You really need a dual action or rotary polisher and some polish, you can buff them back to clear in about 5 mins a side.
You could have a go by hand i guess with an applicator sponge but i've never tried it, it may take a while.

I use two grades of polish, both meguires just different 'cut' grades. Do the coarser one first then the finer one (on my granda's '99 Focus) and it works just fine, only last's about 18 months though. I just do it again.
I'm sure some detailing nuts will have a more in depth procedure and may seal it with another product but my way will acheive what you need to achieve with minimal fuss.
