need help on buffing out scratches on headlights

i bought a set of RS headlights from ebay. one of them has a lot of scratches on it, how do i get the scratches off? i mean they are mildly deep scratches, not like little knicks, but it looks like someone might have taken a knife to them.

you might need a restoration kit

If you can feel them with your fingernail you are going to have to work them pretty good to get them smooth again. You might need something like 3M's headlight restoration kit to sand down and smooth out the surface. Once done you should apply one of our headlight protection kits to both fill in any remaining scratches and protect them from further damage.

If the scratches were light you might be able to get away with a polish and the headlight protection kit, but from the sound of it they are in rough shape. hope that helps.

That's why I put your product on within a week of buying my car. Talk about peace of mind; you guys are great!

3M Headlight Restoration works wonders!! I did it on my crap civic because they were all yellow and then a family member's car. Don't use a lot of water at the end - It makes a huge mess.
