Default Paint removal gone awry

I believe I ruined a lexan body by using acetone to clean off the old paint. It DID work, however, the body is now cloudy and I'm not sure a new coat of paint will show through. I'm thinking of using a plastic polish but, Idon't know if it's going to do much good. I think as a last resort I will have to paint it from the outside.

What techniques have you used to repaint used lexan shells?

I've painted a few "cloudy" bodies. They turned out fine with faskolor paints, avoid transparent, chrome paints. If the windows are cloudy, I don't know anyway to make them clear. you can spray a window tint that will look o.k. nothing great.
good luck
