As long as you keep the sand paper moving and properly wet it's all fine a 150 grit wet is like 180 dry so Basiclly you will have to takes more steps bits it will end up the same result.

Time consuming but rewards at the finish. Those light had a coating that faild to it's a hard thing to remove even with 600 I cut the work in half when I passed using 150 for 2 minutes and then started fining it.

After watching this I had the confidence to have a go on my brother in laws X5

Yes the before shot is of a dirty headlight, but trust me it was in need of fixing



There is still some cloudiness that needs to be sorted but the weather decided it wouldn't be today

So thanks again for the video
