    I work at a bodyshop so its good clear. We've done lots of employee cars this way and the clear is just as resilient as the headlight plastics. I used to colorsand and polish but it just doesn't last the same. Once it's cleared you don't need to touch again.

    I got some polishing pads and used Meguiar's M95 and M105 polishes on my 2000 Civic's headlight lenses and it made them look like new. I got all this stuff for the Civic paint but decided to give it a whirl on the headlights and it worked well.

    i have used a d.a with 320 on some friends dodge headlamps,then finished with some 800 wet and buffed them with #3 compound.came out like new.You can sand h/lamps and t/lamps agressively if they are bag like most older dodge h/lamps are.there is enough plastic that it doesn't hurt them.Have done deep scratch in a t/lamp and had to start with a piece of 80 d.a paper then,180,320 and final 800 wet.buffed with compund and saved $180 on a new t/lamp.Don't be scared to get a little aggresive.;)
