I did this on my 2000 venge when i first got her. i used 400, 600 1200 and 2000. took me a few hours, but after mine were showroom shine.Iused a buffer with the plastic polish.I actually had so many people tell me how great they looked, i do them personally on the side

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

My friend gave me some advice on this. He said just take some brake fluid and dab a little on a rag, and rub the plastic down. Just don't get it on the paint. I tried it, and It worked pretty well!
