You guys may find this funny, the other day it was getting late and i got bored so i grabbed my yellowed out headlights and some stuff. Well all i had was mothers aluminum polish and my 90 degree die grinder (3" sanding wheel). So I took a rag and folded it up, then wrapped it around the grinder and taped the rag around the wheel. Took the mothers and spread it out over the lights. Then at 15000 rpm, I went to town on those things. It came out alot better then i thought it would, just i noticed the chrome is gone on the drivers side so the passenger one looks like new, and the pass is just kinda clean but dull. I'll take pics of those things when i get back in the shop.
