headlight cover

Is there a product I can use to polish or buff the head light cover to get the scratches out? I think after many washes with cheap rags they are very foggy looking. You can see the scratches from washing. I know that you can buff aircraft windshields with a series of compounds to make them clear again.

Those same compounds may well work. But, keep in mind, they will reduce the thickness. Plastic headlights need to be protected from sunlight just like the paint. And also just like the paint, car wax will do the job perfectly. My mom's '02 Jetta's plastic headlights (and all the other lights) look brand new as proof.
