You'll be fine. I'd do it for you for free if they didn't have to be off of the car and shipped across the country lol.
wetsand them with 800 or 1000 and take care to get the haze off. You will probably see it feather back and leave a funky edge, so chase it back the best you can. You can probably get rid of some minor rock chips at the same time too. If you aren't gonna paint them, then you are basically done there. Just try and use some soap and flush them off really well before you give them to the painter.
Remember to wash off the backside of the housing too. All of that dirt and dust can blow off and get into the wet clearcoat. It also makes tape not stick well for when the painter is gonna mask it. It will help your lights come out cleaner, and it will be an appreciated courtesy to the painter as well. We don't like to work on dirty **** lol.
