    Yes. Stop using products to get rid of fog. I used the 3M headlight restore kit on my headlights and fog lights. Worked amazing on both. Used a cordless drill and it was easy to do. Just takes a bit of time. Make sure you take the time to do all the steps properly. I can put some pics up of my lights when I get home. KOT will have a bird if I post a link from my phone lol.

    Mine were horrible, so I wet sanded them and they came out beautiful. 600, 800, 1000, 2000, headlight restore, then clear gloss. Looked new when I was done.

    When you say clear gloss......do you mean like a paint clear coat?

    I personally would never clear coat my headlights. With the heat clear starts to turn yellow. Also, when you start getting rock chips, which always happens the clear will chip. Then when you want to redo them the clear will have to be sanded off. Now I'm not saying that all this will happen 100%. If these guys are saying they did that then obviously it is fine or they would have said to never clear coat. I'm just giving my opinion on that.

    Can't go wrong with 3M or Meguiar's.

    I paid $50 to have a guy do it with 1 year warranty. Worked out amazing.
