believe it or not u may want to try either a) meguires scratch repair or b) ghetto style rub some white toothpaste into it. the toothpaste actually works for tiny scratches on watch faces

Use Meguiar's Plastx. It will remove all the light scratches on your JDM headlights. It also removes any oxidation that has set on them. I have used this product and my headlights are like new again.:)

I always wax my headlights and it seems to protect them from minor scratches. Good luck!

Novus #2 polish, then finish it off with the Novus #3. Toothpaste has too many abrasives in it, and will cause it to make it worse. The lens is plastic, not glass.

DO NOT USE NOVUS 3!!!!


its way to strong and eats the polycarbonate lense right up.. makes it all cloudy too.. max use number 2.. then finish it with number 1 to clean stuff off.

dude, are those gram lights? if not, they look like em. i like em, i used to own a set. then some b hoch stole em. anyway, try using glass polish on them. u'll need a buffer for it tho. a small one. they sell attachments that you can put on a drill and use. also, the glass polish will only work if you can run your finger nail across the scratch and not feel it. if you can feel the scratch with your nail, then its in too deep, sorry. hope that helps.

Hey miztahsparklez, have you first hand experienced with Novus#3? Cause I just ordered Novus #1-3 and planning to use it on my headlights. One of the headlights has a big scratch on it and on the directions it states to use #3. :confused:

the plastic guy/store/place told me to not use number 3 as it is pretty strong and will could your headlights/make it worse as it will eat the finish right off making your headlight dull. he also did a little demo for me with a sheet of plastic and showed me what each product could do. and there was indeed a faint clouding of the plastic where harder products were used. im not too sure if our headlights would do the same.. but i wouldnt risk it unless teh scratches are really bad.
