After reading all the above, I have decided to build a large box out of inch-thick plexiglas and seal my Z inside in a nitrogen atmosphere. I'll never drive it again...too much work to clean it!

Default Foam vs. normal washing

I was thinking about investing in a sprayer and doing foam washes instead of a normal wash with a sponge/mit. I know foaming has the advantage of not rubbing particles into the paint but will it clean just as effectively?

Headlight restoration kit from autoparts store. You will need to sand first with varying grits of sand paper and follow with a polish. The 3M kit that I got included an attachment for a drill and the polish. All items needed and instructions came with the kit.

It depends on how bad your headlights are but the ones I have done so far came out great.
