    On my way into work, a truck's bucket came loose, fell off and scratched the headlamp on my jetta. The scratch seems pretty rough, but did not crack the lens. Any recomendations to minimize the apperiance of this mishap.

    If it scratched it, there's really not much you can do. It shouldn't matter though, because you got the guy's plate and he's buying you a new headlight, right?

    no... I work in the early morning and his bick flew off as he was turning... I already was running late and couldn't afford to lose more time. I have heard of a fine scratch remover, but just wondering if it is actually worth it.

    you can sand it down then sand up to say 1500-2000 then buff it out it will be wavy but the scratch will be gone

    there is also most likely a coating on the lens that will be gone in that spot it might look funny
