In addition to restoring your foggy headlights (BTW, all you need is Mothers Mag and Aluminum Polish, a microfiber cloth, and a little elbow grease), this Mothers product does a great job at making the base of your Questar really pop if it is in need of some TLC.

I strongly advise against polishing the machined knobs. It changes the look and never for the better. Polish is for polished surfaces only.

Just addressing the base. Thanks for the heads up.
