Restoring a clear bra?

This is mainly directed at Ken, or anyone else who might know.
Basically when I bought my car new from the dealer I had a clear bra installed.

These days its not so clear, and it looks pretty bad, especially if its dirty.

I'm debating taking it off (which I dont really want to do, I enjoy being stone chip free) or trying to do something with it to make it clear again, OR I could just pay to have it re-done, but I really dont want to

Is there anything I can do or am I SOL?

Is it chipped up or just looks dull and faded? You can polish some bras, just use a pc and keep the speed down.

Dull and faded
Would I use a cut polish or a finishing polish?

Ive had success on my one and only trial on a clear bra,

try the finishing polish first, see if it can do the job, if not switch to a cut, then back up to the finishing. Do it SUPER SLOW, and carefully checking or you might melt/warp/burn the clear bra.

How about Plexus plastic polish/cleaner? It is the only recommeneded product to use on clear bras. My clear bra is about 6 months old and is looking a bit worn, going to order some Plexus this weekend.

Since I didn't want to create a new thread...

Any place where I can get a minor stone chip fixed that does clear bras as well?
