I have a G100, with 8006 to 9006 pads to LC pads...
All I have to do is PlastX and it will do the job?
OR Would #83 or #80 or Scratch X do the same job??
And if it is still hazy or cloudy, I would then need to step up to do a wet-sand...am I right?

Any1 please help me??

PlastX is the best product for the job and a great "tool" to have in your detailing arsenal.

Other products with the ability to clean/abrade the surface can work also but PlastX is the best product for the job.

PlastX is awesome when working with headlights. My wife's Infiniti G35 had multiple etching and haziness in the headlights. I used PlastX with a foam applicator, removed with a microfiber and the results were brand new looking headlights.

PlastX is the way to go.

I've not tried PlastX yet, just used a polish called Autosol on a terrycloth towel. That worked REALLY good on the headlights.

HOWEVER!!! I don't want to continue using Autosol because it's something like $13 for an 8 or 10 oz tube (I don't remember what I last paid for it). I believe I can go down to PepBoys/AutoZone/Walmart and pick up PlastX for a lot less than that, so I'll probably end up going this route with PlastX.

If they are completely opaque then you will have to be pretty agressive to bring them back. Mine were to the point I was going to replace them but I went this route and was able to polish them back to near perfect. I started with 2000 grit wet or dry sandpaper and worked it until the haze(yellowing) was removed, use lots of water. Then used rubbing compound with an orbital buffer followed by polishing compound again with the buffer. Can also be done by hand but takes longer. Either way you do it take your time. Finished off with PlastX for the final polish and protection. I have found that PlastX is a great preventive to the yellowing and maintains the new look when used regularly.
