OR better yet - Mothers makes a good plastic polish just for this purpose. Any good autobody shop has it. Use a good soft cloth or if you trust a steady hand and a small muslin wheel on your dremel tool you can get it looking new! (Practice on something first)

I washed mine with Simple Green and water, then used Meguiar's plastic polish, then their Plast-X scratch filler/remover.

If the clock lens is fogged, it is in the plastic and not on the surface, so either do the best you can with cleaners and polish or buy one of the repros.

Yeloxr7 nailed it. I tried all the remedies and in the end bought the repros. Once it is fogged, you won't get them clear again.

I guess I'm really lucky - The original lens in my clock is as clear as new.

Ahh - to bad. probably to many years of UV exposure I guess. It was worth a try. Another reason to keep 'em out of direct sunlight as much as possible huh!

Funny thing is, my car was parked outside for many years, facing east. So the clock had lots of sun exposure.

now it is very fashionable to use good protection products for processing plastic, they are also suitable for leather and vinyl, but they should not be applied to glass as stains and stains can remain. Recently I was given an article to read about best interior dressing Best car interior dressing | Interior dressing for auto detailing where experts share tips on leather and plastic processing. Very informative material that is equally useful for both beginners and professionals.
