Thanks again 91davidw
Don't forget the UV protection when you've finished, to stop them going cloudy again.
I personally use this - http://www.motorgeek.co.uk/cgi-bin/e...uct&db_pid=257
- but others have suggested alternatives. As long as you use something that will do the job.

Cheers,

Where do you get the finer grit wet and dry from, nothing but harsher grades at local auto store.

Halfords too, but I'm pretty sure I got up to 5000 [weather's too wild to go out and check].
