So i got out my sander, radio and a milk crate to sit on. need to clean old car headlights, tools, sand, polish
I sanded with 220, 400 and 1000 wet sand paper, frequently spraying the area with water.

After the 1000 grit sanding it looked much better

But as the water on the lights dried, they started to fog over. fogged headlights, sand, light, car
The last thing i did was to spray the lights with a clear coat. This really got rid of the scratches and fogginess and made the lights a lot clearer.
