SF bay area shop that does headlight restorations?

My headlights have so much pitting from rocks and it needs a wetsand and polishing. Are there any affordable and reputable san francisco bay area shops that will do this work? I don't have time or experience to do this myself and was wondering who can do this? And price-wise perhaps.

Any experienced members in the area that can do this for a small fee by chance as well that has experience?

Thanks guys

Thought I had to do it in steps for the wet sanding process? And wouldn't I need a buffer? I don't have access to one.

Actually I was looking into the 3m headlight restoration kit that I searched on people using, but I'm just afraid of messing something up but I think i'll give it a try. I'm assuming all I would need is a drill.
