yeah I wouldnt mind knowing how to get a more clear glo out of my headlights....
I saw somthing at advance auto on the counter. It was a kit for your hand drill. Came with a pad and some compound to get the dicoloration off the lenses. My friend did it on his MX-3 and they look brand new.
I see some stuff on infomercials once in a while.. called "Flitz." But I think it only works on plastic headlights. not sure about glass.
What I've used before and worked well was "Super rubbing Compound made by 3M" and "Imperial glaze also by 3m". These stuff is for automotive paint.

Use the super rubbing compound with a buffer. then the imperial glazeby hand. If you can't find the imperial glaze, you can also use Meguiars #7 Show Car Glaze.

you can also use this to detail your paint. it is very time consumming. I just finish detailing my CRX and looks very shiny. My hood looks like it is wet.

Good luck!
A cheap method for those with plastics headlights is to use toothpaste.
I bough this stuff at Walmart... it was $9.88. It was called "optical polish, auto formula"

It comes with 6 foam pads, which stick to a disk. This disk inserts in your drill. You mist the pad with water, and start polishing. I found it was best to keep misting as you polish. It worked really well on plastic lenses, but did help on glass. It removes hazing very well, cuts down on pitting, and removes minor scratches.

I spent about 5-10 minutes on each lense.

Sorry I don't have pics.
