the mothers powerball for lights works great just keep some of the liquid (you an buy without kit) its called mothers plastx or something like that and keep an old rag around and when it starts to yellow up again (they say on bottle every month, for me its about every 4) put a small drop on old rag and rub in to light repeat for other that touch up works great right after a wash, and takes 1-2 mins. the initial one when its bad (first time) the powerball makes it look nice.

IMO, the best kits to fix the oxidization of the plastic, are the kits that use some fine grit sand paper. You really need to remove the oxidized plastics then buff it to a shine. I used the mcguires heavy duty kit, and it restored mine to a great finish. Hard to see the before, but the after is great!

the expensive meguiars and mothers kits both work miracles meguiars is all through your hand work (all sand paaper and towles)and mothers provides you a drill attachment to buff off the oxidation better and you get sandpaper as well(both provide a microfiber towel and 2 sand paper pieces) but the mothers goes deeper down and the clearness lasts longer from my experience. plus you have that bottle and a towel for touch ups every 6 months or so and the mothers bottle by itself (when you eventually need more fluid either for touch ups or to do a deep clean again) is cheaper
