Tail light scuffs?

I ordered a pair of tail lights from someone and they got scuffed up in the mail. Is there anyway I can use maybe headlight restoration kit on them to fix it?

Just the plastix and one of them yellow pads will clear it right up? Even if they're tinted with I think night shade?

unless you get orange peel none is needed..if you end up having to sand then use a 1500 or finer grit and wet sand only
