You can use a 3m head light polishing kit. You actually start with fine grit sand paper working your way to polishing. I find it cheaper to just replace the Arylic with new.

Try a headlight cleaner kit. For less than $20 it maybe worth a try. If the port windows are crazed, there is nothing short of replacement. Let us know what you end up doing.

Try tooth paste, believe it or not but it makes a very good polishing paste.

Cheap, easy to use, effective. I have also tried the 3M kit, sanding with fine paper, several steps, more work more expensive, but no better result than the Maquires.
