I'd like to respectfully point out that this is not how a polish works. Applying a polish and waiting does nothing. It needs to be worked into the surface with passion (ie - elbow grease) for it to actually "polish" the surface. Think of polishing like sanding a block of wood. You have to work the media - in this case the polish - to achieve the results you are looking for.

On the other hand, a wax or a sealant does not need to be worked like a polish. Simply apply a THIN coat to the surface, wait for it to haze, and then buff it off.

The only reason why I hate unpainted plastic parts on cars...they fade bad after a number of years. Looks great when it's new though!

back to black works wonders but for dull oxidation headlights/tail lights 3m plastic cleaner works awesome, and to shine it up again 3M plastic polish.
