    Will scratches show if...?

    I have a set of rear lights for my mk4
    they have 1 or 2 scratches on them

    If i spray tint them will the scrathes show up even more?
    Will you be able to see them
    Any tips for removing scratches? Scourer pad before spraying? or polish/t-cut?

    Cheers

    you will still see them once painted, you could try sanding them down with wet n dry if thier not too deep

    Maybe very fine wet n dry with a Lil fairy liquid, maybe a grit 1200 or higher. Maybe a polishing machine on it after. Maybe get a second hand rear light of any vehicle and put a few scratches in it and try the above method, atleast then u will know of any success rather than going in blind and possible mucking up your own light.

    trying it with high grade wet n dry wont do much damage to the lights if they are getting tinted anyway
