headlight scratched!

My passenger headlight lens has a 2 inch long scratch in the plastic. Is there anything I can do to fix it, or do I have to replace the lens?

yes, it's too deep to rub out with compound

good idea, that's the cheapest you'll probably find one. Buying it from the dealer is going to cost you an arm and a leg.

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.
