I had a similar issue with my drivers side headlight and used auto glym metal polish, itís basically a cutting polish and the head lamp is at least smooth, I would think the brightness would be restored by removing the dull layer?

That's what the wet&dry paper does. Then you restore the finish with whatever abrasive paste you favour, whether that's some specific 'headlight kit', generic plastic polish(probably the same stuff but considerably more economical) or paint refinishing products. The key to any sort of polishing is to use just enough abrasive to start with; otherwise after a lot of work you end up with a poor, but shiny surface.
