I'm curious how he did that.

But I just use some carnuba wax on my headlights, about once a month. Rub that shiz all the way in.

3M's plastic cleaner followed by their plastic polish has always worked very well for me. http://www.amazon.com/3M-Plastic-Cle.../dp/B0002U1TSU

I second the 3M products. I used to use a product called Plexus and it did ok, but not nearly as well as some wet sanding and 3M plastic cleaner.

If your lights are turning yelllow or stained. Go to the motorcycle shop and buy some plastic polish for windsheilds and headlights.

Cleans them right back up.
