    I have used normal car polish to restore cloudy lenses to good effect.

    Ok, is that on the 210 episodal headlights?

    I might try some T cut as mine are quite bad, can feel a kind of mottled surface -

    Used meguires plast-x myself only did using elbow grease and not a full on buffing operation . Results were reasonable-still slight crazing marks.. and did a good job on the rear plastic lenses as well, surprised what a difference that made. No white marks afterwards either!
