Autosol metal polish is great stuff for cleaning/removing dirt from the headlights imho.

Myself and my brother would use compound paste on my headlights, to get rough paint off i would cover a scraper with a thin strong cloth and take heavy stuff off. What kinda paint is it?
If in doubt, let her out!
