    I think there is a way to do it that involves sanding them down then machine polishing them afterwards but glass is pretty tough stuff to be polishing scratches out of!

    Try Meguirs Plast-X. You can even get it from Halfrauds. I've used it on headlight plastic before and after two or three hits by hand the results have been excellent. Also a much safer method than wetsanding.:yes:

    Working by hand, the advice above is very sound with regards to the Plast-X. Working by machine, Menzerna 106FA on a polishing spot pad is ideal and works a treat. :thumbsup:
