    headlights??? scratches

    i have a set of standard headlights which i have seprated to modify parts of them however looking at the clear lens it is all scratched and almost like its diffused rather than clear. any ideas how to smarten this back up, smoothin out the scratches to get it looking clear again or something like it?

    thanks in advance

    Meguiar's PlastX may help. I've used the ScratchX on mine and it shines them up nicely - ScratchX is sooo mild, but the PlastX version is probably more suited.

    iv ordered some plastx so gonna give that a go. however if i cant get them any better can i buy just the clear lenses from a dealer? rather than new headlamps. they have got really dull and dingy from the lights and then are scratched up like hell as if someones used like sandpaper to clean them lol.

    Give PlastX a go first - mine were looking a bit faded, matt and slightly yellow tinged but ScratchX brought them up lovely so hopefully PlastX wil do as good or a better job

    I think yuo need to buy complete headlight units to replace them mind...
