Unhappy Buyeye headlight scratch/crack?

I'm trying to figure out how to remove this scuff from my headlights:





I did a search, but nothing came up. Any ideas?

You can try wet sanding with 1000-2000 grit sand paper then using a swirl/scratch remover with a polisher go over the headlights. Same process as headlight restoration.


Just food for thought!

Is the 3m restore kit worth trying?

I used the 3m kit an IMO No, I lamps are foggeed worse. I wanted to remove scratching and it fogged them. I may need to do the process more then twice though.

3m kits work great for hazing and fogging, ^youre doing it wrong. But sadly will do next to nothing for your issues. In the pics those looks like stress cracks in the plastic. I've done more than a few diff cars and no matter how deep I sand it's not deep enough to remove the scratches. My best advice is to either deal with it, or buy a nice new shiny set of headlights. Restoring wont hurt, but won't fix stress cracks

^Yeah because getting side markers for a GC8 will definitely solve his problem with his damn headlights
