Foglights Fixed

Foglights Fixed

Hello all,
This really doesn't need a full write up but my foglights were kinda cloudy so I did some research and I went ahead and tried what I had read. Basically I wet sanded the foglight rough then completely smooth then used clear coat spray paint and it worked. I also did it to my friends headlights and it worked also. All in all, it cost like $20 bucks.

This 1st picture was right after I sanded them down. I started with 100 grit then 200 to smooth the foglight out. The second photo is the after. I will add better photos in the morning if anyone would like.

Its probably the picture but it still looks hella foggy, 3M sells a kit for about 30 buck to restore lights, works wonders!
