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 anyone knows what grit, please let me know

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

This site never stops amazing me. That sticky is perfect!! Now i just need to somehow come across a buffer cause my wife will not let me buy one. Haha. Sucks but thats what happens when you are 28 married with 3 kids. Money goes elsewhere. Haha. Oh well

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

The one on the sticky? Its with the compunds and sand paper and all that. U say that only is for light scratches and 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

Let me start by say #*CK!!! I honestly had no clue that the lower the number, the more coarse. One of those rookie mistakes. Anyways, now im stuck with my damn lenses that wont clean at all. Im tryin to find some scrap stock headlights but am having no luck. Just wanna switch the lenses out since it did that whistler mod. Shit shit shit!!! This sucks. Any suggestions?

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

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
