I’m trying to shine these up a bit. They are a bit ‘foggy’ and though I’ve tried a couple of products they’re not as bright as I want yet. Any ideas?

I have seen this done using 2000 grit wet and dry with half decent results, but for a quick fix I use G2 rubbing compound, not as brutal as wet n dry but you might have to do it again after a couple of years.

It's always best (though not necessarily the cheapest) to start with the least aggressive method and work your way up.

I went with a T-Cut headlight restoration kit, which did the job well. The compound is thicker and more abrasive than normal T-Cut, more like a paste, which helps to reduce mess, and it included a sealant too, which should help prevent future hazing from UV damage... at least in theory!
