He doesn't sound Polish, I'd guess that he was American :)

I stopped watching when he mentioned it was a plastic lens - does he later say it also works on glass?

It works on glass - he does say so and I discovered that for myself empirically.

(fingers crossed and hope for the best, couldn't get any worse anyway)

Standard disclaimer/warning:
Try a test piece somewhere that doesn't matter first

I bought Autosol and tried it on my headlight glass. First locally only over the scratched area and then all the headlight glass.
I had to apply to the other headlight since it looked dull compared to the polished one.

There were 4-5 scratch lines about 3-4 cm each and all have disappeared :D
I used rubber gloves and sponge. I would have used electric tool for a larger surface.

I used to think my ex was Polish, but when she took a week to hoover the downstairs I realised she was a Slovak.
