== == Here is advice: == == * You can use a flitz wheel (brush) on a drill with the polish they send with it or some times you can use a compound polish that you get at your local auto parts store. * Try One Step it does not use abrasives of any type. It is the only product on the market that addresses the problem of oxidation based on the molecular structure of Acrylic Oxidation. It will clear your lens on contact, no sanding or buffing.

* About three grits of sandpaper some rubbing compound and some clear coat. * Any time you have to use sandpaper on a headlight you need new lens. Even paper will scratch plastic. Sandpaper and rubbing compound will destroy the clarity.
