Some headlights need to be resurfaced and it takes an abrasive cleaning system like the one airman is describing. However in many cases the where oxidation exists the damage is not severe and scratching and pitting are not the major problem, a deoxidizer will clear up your lens instantly. Your factory installed UV layer can be damaged and removed with abrasive compounds and sandpaper. This will cause the lens to yellow. Pittman's Original ALR the only true deoxidizer for headlights it removes oxidation on contact without damaging the UV layer http://www.ibc34.com/Before-and-After.html.
