no....try ebay. if all you need is lenses, you can probably find a decent deal on some headlights that you can take apart and salvage the lens.

thats what i did. its a little more work, but worth it instead of paying like 300+ for new headlights from honda.

oh...just read your last post. if theyre just scratched...and not damaged or anything serious, just do some fine FIIIIIIIIIIIIINE sanding on them and polish them up...you should be able to clear that up. no need to buy lenses...

if you're gonna go through the trouble of buying a separate pair of headlights off of ebay, why not just install those headlights instead of separating the lenses and installing them onto your existing headlights? that seems super redundant. or maybe i don't understand what you're talking about.

elaborate.

in my experience, at least, the headlights i bought off ebay were in slightly worse condition than the ones i was trying to fix. for instance, some of the mounting brackets were broken off. my original intent was to use the headlights, but i realized that all i could use was the lens. but, for $29, it was perfectly fine for what i needed it.

granted, if he finds a good deal on a pair of used headlights that are in good condition, theres no reason to go to all that trouble.

i guess i didnt really explain that whole business...lol

in either case...i think he should try to sand/buff the scratches out before going to the trouble of changing lenses. i mean, how badly scratched up can they be??

I bought this little package from Wal-Mart made to buff out automotive lenses. It's a little disc that attaches to your drill, and it came with 5 sponges with this stuff embedded into it that you had to lightly mist to activate. Worked pretty well, but if they're fairly deep scratches, you wouldn't really notice a difference. If they were deep, I'd take some 1000 grit to it, then buff it out with some 2000 grit paper. I remember seeing a thread somewhere about someone doing this, but it was to un-yellow the lenses, not remove scratches...

Plastx is just like scratch-x but for plastic, I believe is made by megular, but I have never used it.
