It used the rear lights off of the Cortina, MkII (and is therefore now
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? 
comments or advice on this idea would be greatly appreciated.

Hi William,

The label is off the bottle so I cannot tell you what the brand name is,
but I use convertible top, plastic rear-window treatment for these types
of parts--it works quite well.  I think I bought it from Moss Motors, or
maybe even JC Whitney--I can't recollect.  

Now that I think about it, Armor All, or the knock-offs, ought to work
well, too. WD40 will put the color back into them, but it doesn't last
very long.
