I'm with jonmcc and pjb. I recently "rehabbed" my lenses last weekend. They weren't hazy, but there were a few surface dings that bugged me especially when the lights were on. Personally, I went from 600 to 1000 to 2000 grit sandpaper and finished it off with Meguiar's Plastx polish. The results were great. The lens surface is super smooth and the nicks and dings are non-existent. I do plan on going over it again by hand with the polish. (I initially hit it with the mini powerball) There are some hairline scratches that I notice only when the lights are on. (I may be a little ocd on this one, but aren't a lot of us) Save yourself some bucks and spend an hour or so on polishing instead of replacing! Just my .02!
