I was noticing that my headlights plastic has been taking a beating from highway cruiz'n. What's the best way to get the clear plastic smooth and glossy again... Without causing any further damage to it.

You might want to try a plastic polish. There are several on the market and most will remove light scratches. Novus makes a good one but I'm not sure where you can get it. You should be able to find something at a hardware or automotive store.

Another option to eliminate any further road / grit damage to those expensive composite headlamps is to get a clear bra headlight / fog kit. I recently installed one on mine and have been very pleased. They also have kits to protect the entire front fascia, hood edge, mirrors, and front edge of the fenders.

I use REJEX... couldn't be happier. It also works on glass.
