Headlight Polish?

Just wondering if anyone knows of a quality product that will take the haze out off old headlights ('95 GT). I know Meguiar's makes a plastic cleaner & plastic polish, about $8 each, but do they really work? I like the cobra lights and such, but would rather spend that kind of dough on go fast parts!
Thanks.

Yes it will work but you will get better results with some sanding first. I used a plexiglass cleaner for my old mazda headlights and got them back to almost new condition.

What did you sand with? And where can I get the plexiglas cleaner?

I always wet sand with 1000-2000 grit and buff out with 3M swirl remover. they look prefect

I used a cloth buffing wheel and a bar of white rouge. Sorry I don't remember the technical name, but it worked on my 96 and 68 taillights. Check out Eastman they have what I used, or start looking at parts stores, they may have them.

Sounds good, guys. Definitely better than shelling out cash for a new set. I'll give it a try.

i've heard from a bunch of guys on another board that this stuff works great and that buying no headlights is a waste of money, although i have no personal experience with it....
