My instrument lenses are fogged as all hell.... Most of my gauges don't seem to work anyway, but i wouldn't be able to tell once I fix em.
Can I buff this fog out?

quick glo has a formula to polish plastic. It is "quick glo fine". I used it last week to polish a set of headlights on my sister-in-law's Toyota. It works great.

Quite a few things out there. I used a product from Mequiars called Plastx. Picked it up at a local show.

The lense on my Trans Am was not as bad as what you are describing, but after several patient cleanings, it came out nicely. If yours is really bad, you may need something more aggressive, at least at first. Maybe one of those headlamp polishing kits.

T/A lense here...

Thanks for the advice, I'll check what's around locally.
Wasn't sure if they could be buffed clear again.
