Dear all:

I thought it might be appropriate to make this inquiry here.  My question
is one of technique and materials and isn't marque specific so I sort of
thought it fit into the 'shoptalk' format.  I'm restoring a 1971 TVR 2500.
It used the rear lights off of the Cortina, MkII (and is therefore now made
of unobtanium).  I'm trying to re-furbish the units; they're actually in
pretty good shape but...  does anyone have any advice on cleaning up
plastic lenses?  Mine are a bit scratched and dull; is there a very mild
polish or very fine grit grinding agent that can be used on plastic?  Any
comments or advice on this idea would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. also; any advice on not taking this restoration too seriously would be
appreciated as well.  I'm starting to suspect that I've gone over the top,
worrying about these tail lights.  ;-)
