I had a board member tell me that if you use one of those wheel polishing things you buy at autozone and use a little brake fluid with a drill motor that they will clean right up. Just be careful with the fluid and keep it off the paint.

I've used Toothpaste and a High speed Buffer...(make sure and use water or it will scratch the fuck out of them)

Brasso. All the yellowing is is Oxidation. Just like on Brass. A Little Brasso, and a good buffing, and you're good. Of course, if you do not apply some sort of protectant, the yellowing is going to come back. But all you have to do is just buff it again after you wash the ride.

headlights

I have always used some 2000 grit sandpaper wet and some compound and comes out great, and also gets rid of the yellowing.

I use a kit called Micromesh. I used to use it on aircraft windows. Works great on my Taurus SHO's head lights .

Do a search for it and you'll find it. I will post if I get a link.

The clearcoat will start to peel over time, end result...having to re-polish them again.
