Oh hey... I bought a Cyclo recently and they email out tips and tricks. If you have one or access to one I am sure this headlight restoration tip would work pretty much the same for fixing scratches in lexan...
Simple Headlight Restoration with a Cyclo Polisher.
Headlight Restoration VideoHeadlight restoration often requires the restoration of an acrylic lens cover. Essentially the process is dedicated to resurfacing the cover and then polishing. We have learned about a restoration process that uses a standard heavy-duty compound and Genuine Cyclo Wool Pads.
Here is an outline of the process:
Clean the lens cover with soap and water.Untreated Headlight
Allow the lens cover to dry completely. Remove any standing water with a towel or compressed air.
If lens requires substantial restoration it is recommended that you tape-off the painted areas to avoid any contact with pads and chemicals during headlight restoration process. Headlight Restore Pad Configuration
Configure your Cyclo Polisher with a one Original Cyclo Cutting Wool pad and one Blue Polishing Wool Pad.
Apply a nickle sized dot of heavy compound to the Original Cyclo Cutting Wool Pad - we used our CTI Pro Paint Care Heavy Compound Gel. It is not necessary to apply any product to the Blue Polishing Wool Pad.
Begin restoring the headlight by cutting with the Original Cyclo Wool pad and compound. During the same pass, allow the Blue Wool Polishing Pad to polish and restore treated area.
It is recommended that restore half of the headlight then re-apply a nickle sized drop of compound to the Original Cyclo Cutting Wool Pad to complete the other half.Restored Headlight
Wipe down with a microfiber towel to complete.
