Another Query. Anybody able to help with a solution to cloudy headlights. I have been given a few solutions eg; Toothpaste, sandpaper etc. The best thing that I have done so far is cust & polish but that didnt work great.

Been covered alot, (search for yellowed headlights).
With some elbow grease 1200 Wet&Dry will get rid of most of the yellowing - it will leave the surface dull and not very transparent. More elbow grease and some car Cut & Polish (I use TCut) will bring it up quite well.

If you have buffing compound for the buffer then use that - does same job with less effort, ;)
