reconditioning lights

took the plunge at the weekend and decided to do the lights. removed them from the car and they looked like this

started with the 400 grit wet and dry and after about half an hour they looked like this

then went on to 800, 1200, 1500, 2000 and 2500. sprayed lots of water on them during the sanding process. finally I used a rubbing compound and polished them up. they now look as good as new. a lot of hard work but well worth it in the end.
