Cleaning perspex windows?

Can anyone tell me how to clean perspex windows on a kit car? They are fixed and dont go up or down. They are looking a bit yellow and faded if that makes sense?

Cheers

EDIT.....would it be the same as cleaning a headlamp lens on a car? Toothpaste and buffer?

If you try an online shop for aircraft supplys there is canopy and windscreen polishing compound for just this problem.

I have used t cut on perspex. I think any fine abrasive will work?
I guess it depends how deep the yellowing goes. If beyond the surface it will be replacement. (polycarbonate would be a better safety choice as doesn't shatter like acrylic, but then it scratches a bit easier...)

Car headlight cleaning kit.


Or


Remove them and use them as a template to make new ones. The hard work has already been done.

Try a small area first. If it's polycarb you will make it worse, it cannot be polished

Try Plexus which is a very fine spray polish used on light aircraft windows
