here it's my best advice for you buddy you will need the next material
1000 grit sandpaper
2000 grit sandpaper
water container with a little car or dishes soap jut to make the water a little bit soapy.
buffer if you don't have one you can still do it by hand
rubbing compound (I'll personal recommend you mothers)
liquid wax wet looking (it's commonly use for the plastic on bikes)
sand with the 1000 grit back and forth horizontal on the headlight
then with the 2000 grit same motion but now do it vertical after you are done its going to look real dull but all the scratches and blemishes or yellow stains are going to be gone,
here is the step when the buffer comes handy, but if you don't have one a little elbow grease it's your best friend. start with the glaze rubbing compound rub it all over the headlight and let it chill like 30 seconds but don't let it completely dry and then with a dry microfiber or 100% cotton rag wipe it off it's going to look sweet at this stage but you are not done yet complete the job with the wet looking wax to protect it and give a show car finish and you are all done!!!:toung:
