ok i'll post pics guys.


i started with a 3M headlight restore compound mainly to clean the surface, i already had it so it was just overkill really

then i started wet sanding with an 800 grit sandpaper and did so for about 15 minutes

next i went to a 1000 grit sand paper and kept wet sanding for about 10 minutes

then i used a 2000 grit and sanded for 15-20 minutes

i started finishing up my using a rubbing compund to get the last of the scratches out

and i sealed with a wax


i know it took awhile and the length of time i spend sanding in each stage was maybe overkill but im in college and bored so i could afford to take my time. it got dark on me before i could snap a pic of the completly finished product but i'll make sure that one goes up tomorrow after class
