Anyway, I used water with a little soap for the sanding. Then rinced with clean water & applied the pads.
The cracks where on the outside & were kind of deep. I started with 800 & was having trouble getting rid of the cracks. So I went down to 340 & that worked.
When I get home Ill check the name of the pads & let you guys know tomorrow.
Did you ever check the name on the pads? I'm going to be detailing the car (weather permitting) this weekend and would like to give these a try.

Sorry, I had checked but I forgot to post back.
They are made by CCP. & are called "5 minute headlamp lens restorer".
They come in a black box, 1 plastic drill adapter, & 6 pads that stick to the adapter.
I found them at Advance Auto.
