A mild abrasive for hard plastics such as Zaino Z-14 plastic polish.

Try a little mother's mag and aluminum polish on a soft cloth

Soft Scrub works great

i wet sanded mine, then polished/waxed
worked pretty good
but wont make them "new", considering their 5 years old <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" />

Have to look at what's making the "fog".
Abrasives like have been suggested work
if it's outside surface scuffing or
oxidation. However, if you have gotten
water inside the lens, you may have messed
up the reflector (and/or just have moisture
clouding the lens inside). I had to replace
reflector assemblies ($$$) for moisture
damage on another car.
