    I have one headlight which looks brand new, however one which is slightly dull and yellow, i dont have a polishing pad/ roteray pad. Would useing something like meguirers plastix do anything with some good elbow grease?

    Try a clay bar with dodojuice born slippy. That should definitely move it.

    You can be brave and take it 1 step further by wet sanding it down. Ive done it on many cars and the lights come out brand new.

    Simply use something like a 2000 grit to start or stronger depending on severity, then using rotary to polish down.

    Exactly what I was going to suggest - I always clay my glass and lights as well and keeps them looking great - especially as the flies seem to be attracted to the lights at night! SPLAT
