The process is more important than the product. Take your time and do each step thoroughly and don't skip any steps. Most automotive headlights have a similar grade of plastic. I used a $8 bottle of Turtle Wax Headlight Restorer, two worn socks, and a garden hose to achieve these results on my wife's Durango. No power tools, just elbow grease and patience.




But honestly, the next time I have heavily clouded lights to deal with I'm picking up a polishing pad I can put in my drill, proper sandpaper, and that PlastiX stuff. You can do it by hand with cheap stuff but the reality is it won't last as long.
