jamminsvt My left fog broke just like that a few months back. I was going to buy a new one from Ford and polish the other one, but after looking closely, the remaining original was deeply pitted. Didn't think I could polish/ sand enought to get it all out. I just bought two new ones from Rockauto for less that the price of one new OEM version.

One of my fogs busted while I was researching polishing glass, that heavily swayed my decision on buying a new pair.
yup i used to have an old 88 chevy truck with those universal glass squared lights. IMO polishing those came out better than any modern plastic headlights ive polished. it has to be done right though

That was my point really, except I meant to say for ONE fog though. I know I posted a reconditioning link to a from a BMW 'how-to' here, but I cant find it. It looked like more time and effort than just getting affordable replacements... or maybe I'm just getting older.

For my Mach headlights that begin at $400 used reconditioning was a no brainer.
