Default Cargo light lens restoration

My Cargo light is looking quite dingy and I was wondering if there was a way to shine it up and looking new again? Thanks!

most of the headlight restore kits are just a glorified sanding system with rubbing compound.

.........now i am assuming that the plastic is just fogged up like headlights. I have not tried it myself. I ended up getting a "new" one from the yard............
