Default Bringing OHC Back To Original Shine

hey guys I just got an OHC, but I am not painting it. I am just keeping it the stock grey and black color because it goes well with my stock grey and black of my 06. Im just looking for some details on products and ways to bring it back to its original shine. I already cleaned it alil bit with a rag, and scrub pad lightly with some dish detergent to get the dirt and such off of it but after years of sitting. Its def got some ground in imperfections and light scratches and hazing on the lenses. Thanks, Zach.

I had the same problem, but unlike you I decided to paint mine, all I did was used some sandpaper to take out surface scratches, go lighty so you don't take off texture! And you could just paint it black if you couldn't find the grey of your truck!

you can use plastic-X from the Meguiar's line on a foam applicator pad to remove the scratching from the lenses... otherwise just clean it nicely and dress it with whatever products you want... from what's available at the store, I personally like the Meguiar's natural shine interior detailer. It leaves a nice and clean satin finish on the dash.

I used plastic-x on my gauge cover:
