    im trying to tidy annoying little bits up on my car and the foglight i have got is splattered with stone chips
    can i rub it down with 1500 wet & dry and then polish it up?
    or will that make it worse?
    also what bulb type is in them?

    thanx

    Well there was a dude on here that did that with his headlights and he said they came out a treat, so worth ago, ive got some replacement fogs on the way so when i get them im going to have a go at snading the old ones down and seeing how they come out.

    The bulbs are H7's same as the main beam mate.

    Glass is more difficult to polish than the plastic of the headlights... I have given my headlights a couple of sweeps with Menz final finish and a DA and they are much clearer... I will be trying wet and dry next to see if I can lessen the micro crack you can see when the lights are on...
