Default mobile headlight restoration companies?

Anyone have any experiences in nova with a headlight restorer that comes to you? Headlights are super dingy and wanted to try this before I drop $200 minimum on new lights

Dr. Vinyl

Mobile service. Headlight restoration, leather and vinyl seat repairs, paint touch up, etc.

I work on their vans. They have done a few customer cars. Always come out nice.

Various grits of wet sand and Meg's plastiX polish works, look up diys, I don't feel like describing how to do it.

And DOOM, what's this toothpaste method? Never heard of it. How do you apply it? Etc.

If you do it, make sure to apply a UV coating afterward.
