I bought some to try on some pickup truck aftermarket (eBay) headlights. It worked. The headlights were clear and looked much better. Not a replacement for a good mechanical polish with quality products but better then it was before. The truck was on its way from Cali to North Dakota where it spent three weeks in snow. It came back with the headlights in the same condition as before I applied it, maybe a little better. I am going to give them another coat and see how long it lasts here in good Cali weather.
For $15.00 at Target I figured I would give it a go.
EDIT: I just read that it hardens after it dries and takes 24 hours to cure before it can be exposed to moisture. My test run on the truck lights did not get this much time. Ill give it another go when time permits.

What exactly are you having to remove that justified charging people more to polish their headlights (I assume that's what you are doing)? It goes on thin like an oily protectant, similar to Armor All. Its not a thick coating that would have to be sanded. Not in my experience at least.
EDIT: Perhaps my failure to let it cure did not allow whatever you have to work hard removing to cure and harden?
