I recently bought a spare set of headlights for a joey mod. I am now done with them and notice that the lens looks pretty sh!tty. Do any of you have any experience with a plastic polish/buffer like Meguairs stuff?

I've never used the Meguire's plastic polish, nor have I ever attemped to polish out a VW headlamp. I have, however, used Novus & Blue Coral plastic polishes on Volvo headlamps as well as convertible top windows on old MGs & Truimphs. They both worked reasonably well on light surface scratches on plastic.

Keep in mind, Meguiars is a two-step product: Clear plastic cleaner, which is great on VW lights, and Clear plastic polish, which is also good. Use the cleaner with a random-orbit buffer not to burn the Lexan, and apply polich by hand aterwards. Cleaner is really a microfinishing compound, but it is extremely fine grit. Polish is to be used ~every week to keep up with the oxidation. I beleive they both are around $5.99 or so. There is always money-back guarantee. Try it.

I have used novus. I think they come in different steps (different "grits"). you go with step 4, then 3, 2, 1. I think it was novus at least. We got some samples (a a pouch) at the place I used to work for. works well on plastic.
