Cool Windscreen restoration?

Hi all

Amazingly, the stock windscreen for my '96 GPZ1100 is physically in good shape, minus the clouding.
Does anybody have recommendations for restoring the clarity to it's former, pristine shape, or is that kind of a pipe dream?

I'll order new, if that's what needs to be done, but they ain't cheap. Being a single income family with a 4 year old means there's no such thing as "disposable" income, ya know?

Thanks much, and have a great day, all y'all

I have polished old perspex, plexi etc. with wet 1000, 1500 and then 2000 grit papers followed by Plastex polish.
