Soon I get a little free time I'm gonna do that to mine. Except I'm going to use a small palm sander.

I wet sand them by hand first 1000 then 2000 and bust out the buffer

They usually come out real nice

I also do the sand and buff and wow they come out real good
I bought a set used a while back that had the inside perfect, a lot of oxidation but no yellow at all (GOOD!!!), after 600 through 3000 grit and polish they looked brand new.
I now have those on my tc
For those who also do this, I recommend a permanent coating to replace the uv protection that is now long gone
I use optilens and it's hands down some of the best stuff on the market for headlight/plastic protection
1987 T-Bird
Too much stuff to list
Running better than ever

Same here. Doesn't take long too do either. Fully worth the time investment.
