I did this last weekend... I had some bad pitting, so i used 400 -> 600 -> 800 -> 1000 -> 2000. I couldn't find 3000 short of ordering 50 pieces on the net... So I didn't. The rest of the stuff can be found at any auto store. Of course, they're not as clear as original, but it looks a helluva lot better. The surface is uniform and pretty clear. I was very much impressed. I would have taken pics, but being that it was a clear lense... the camera will not focus on it well enough. I really recommend trying this though before buying new lenses. I'm happy with the results, spend $10 on paper/polish... saved $70 for new lenses. :-)
