Do a search mate.... cleaning the headlights has come up many times before. You should find threads with proven techniques for making your headlights look new

i clean mine with 2500 grit then 3000 grit, dry it off then use a heavy compound and buff out the fine scratches then use a bit of polish to shine up, scary thought at 1st but after a few cars its a doddle, just watch those wings when sanding
if it has tits or wheels, sooner or later you will have problems
