Headlights Haze/Cloudy

Anyone know of a good product to polish out the white haze on my 2002 Bugeyes headlights? The top of them have gone cloudy on the outside over time and I have read online that if I use a plastic polish and a polishing tool, I should be able to remove it. Just wondered what you guys recommend?

Re: Headlights Haze/Cloudy

what polish do u have in your collection now ?
A lot of normal polishes will help, if your lights are really bad you might need some 3000 grit wet & dry then a good polish up,
Detailing world would be a good place to search and have a read if you ever find yourself over that side of the internet.

Just found this on DW -
Headlight Restoration - - Detailing World -

I've only got the usual turtlewax type products. Nothing specific for plastics I will have a look at detailing world too. Cheers for that.

Any polish with a small amount of cut should help, you dont need a specific glass polish, scratch X from megs is very good on plastic headlamps for example.

T- Cut original colour restorer or Brasso are very good on plastic headlamps.
