Meguier's PlastX. Unless your windows are beyond saving, you shouldn't be disappointed.

I used plastx on mine and it worked pretty well on getting all the cloudy off the windows but all the scratches are there they're just much easier to see past, worth the money IMO

Back in the day when everyone had a CJ5, we used gel tooth paste on the plastic windows. It cleaned off all of the yellow stains.

Novus Plastic polish worked very well for me. Pretty labor intensive though to have good results.

That is fantastic. I am guessing you can take the windows off and lay them flat on a clean surface to do this? Looks like I have found a way to fix up my windows.
