    May want to get a hold of Z06 Goose I think is his tag, prolly could help with those areas. My way would be by hand and take a few of hours..

    Goose prolly gave you what u need,. but i will add.

    If your good with a drill, get the 3M headlight kit.

    you can even do it by hand...

    try 800 grit first, if you need more, do 500.

    i do 500/800/1500/3000 then polish them (you can use Meg's PlastX).

    I use water with all grits.

    BTW, where are you located ni Texas?

    Im in Tyler, about 2 hours east of Dallas.

    I would prob do it by hand, i dont want to risk over heating the palstic.

    I plan to try the PlatX. The hazing isnt bad, that may be all i need.

    But where can I find this fine grit sand paper?

    And is there any special technique to wet sanding? or is it just keeping your surface wet during the the sanding?

    The headlight kit works really well but the haze comes back.
