    You can use a Mother's ball along with plastic polish. I saw on PowerBlock last summer, toothpaste works as well. I can't remember what grit sandpaper to use on lenses.

    If they are bad and you are wet sanding by hand, I'd go as low as 200. Work tour way up to 1000 grit and then use a buffer from there. There is a sticky in the appearance museum if you'd like to remove the nipples as well

    As long as the scratches aren't too deep. Those kits are best for removing haze.

    U can start with 200 then go up to a 1000. 200 will delete the the scratches.
    There's many ways to do it. Buy the kit, use polish compound, stuff like that.
    The easiest way is buying the kit.

    With this mod, does it lower the distance of the lights? I drove my car last night for the first time at night since doing this mod, and noticed my lights don't shine as far as they use to. This happen to anyone else?

    I wouldnt touch the lenses with anything rougher then 600 IMO, 200 is WAYYYY to course and will leave gouges in the lens. i have a write up of what i used to polish mine out and they were as bad as yours when i started

    I read a write up to start with 220. Didn't have it. So, me being the noobie, I went with 180 to start.

    ooohhh ouch, i just did mine last week and started with 500, which scared me, then jumped to 800, then to 3000 wet, and finally the polishing pad with a polishing compound, they look brand new, it might not be to late for you though, get some 500 grit and work your way up to 600, then 800, to 1000 wet 3000 wet, than get the polishing pad and compound, and see what you get, you could probably buy the 3m kit from autozone, which is what i used and fix your boo boo

    if you buy the kit for 25 bucks that goes on a drill, make sure to stay moving across the headlight evenly so you dont get any flat spots, or heat the lense up and cause it to melt
