Convertible Top Back Window...restorer

The rear window is hazy, milky on 86 Spider.
Fabric top is great so I'd like to clean up the window.
Not yellowed or hard. You can see out through the interior mirror ok, but looking from outside it's not as clear. The further you stand back the more difficult to see.images...yes, but not clear.
Anybody have a favorite product or method?
Cheers, Jon

Meguiars Plastic X seems to work pretty good.

I watched a number of U tube videos. I ended up using some Mothers Plastic conditioner I had on hand. Used it manually with north/south and east/west motion. I came out remarkably well.
Cheers, Jon

Looks great - was going to suggest a Meguir's rubbing compound - almost the same product and does wonders on plastic components.

I have used Novus for the rear plastic window with much success.
