    i recently replaced one headlight on my vw golf b.c it was cracked....

    the other old light is somewhat pitted with normal road debris and looks very different from the brand new one....is there anything i can do to make the old one polished and look better?

    How would i polish glass?

    thanks

    If the pitting is deep enough, you probably will have to wetsand before compounding then polishing.
