Foggy/Scratched/Milky headlights

Alright, so I did the BHLM on the headlights a while ago and now they started to fog up. So im going to open them back up and reseal.

First: Ive got some scratches on the outside of the lense, that i cant get out with turtle was rubbing compound, or meguires plasticx. What else to try... there not too deep but visible and slightly feelable.

Also: The inner side of the headlight lense has become a little milky. when i open the light up, how should I clean it up.

Use rubbing alcohol and dry it all up completely on the inside. And the deep scratches will be there... forever.
