    The process is basically the same as for paint mate. You can even take auto grade sandpaper to them and then polish them out if they are REALLY dull.

    As above; polishing them by hand or machine is perfectly reasonable and works a treat, just always go in gently with the least abrasive polish and pad and work up in terms of aggression from there. Usually a coarse finishing polish like Menzerna FPII or 106FA on a polishing pad will do the trick. :yes:
