Question Dull light covers

The light covers on my 03 blobeye are showing signs of age. Can they be polished to sparkle again?
I have an orbital polisher and some g3 compound, would this work or do I need a finer paste?

Re: Dull light covers

Try a bit of 2000 wet and dry, some meguires compound and then a polish. Had to do the same on our car. Will take a while and a couple of goes but should make a big difference.

I used different grades of compound and then polish and wax and they where as good as new. Just be careful not to let too much heat build up

I like using Sylvania headlight restoration kit because it comes with UV Block Clear Coat.
