    I put a light idiot scratch during installation of my new pro headlights. Should I try polishing them or just leave them alone? Maybe buy a new one?IMG_0685.jpg

    Give it a week. You'll know. Drivers side looks like, what's your OCD level? Doesn't look too bad to me. You buy a new one sure as sh!t somebody will run a shopping cart into the replacement. Yup, glass not half full. People b stupid in publix.

    Just get a bottle of Meguiars plastic polish and give it a try, cheaper than a replacement.

    What @manofsteele said.
    There are a few other products out there that will fill plastic scratches too.

    Don't buy a new one... You aren't allowed to own nice things. You replace that headlight and a rock will hit the shit out of your hood the same day.
