Update - Sanded headlights - pics

After a couple years of driving in Arizona, My headlights have gotten a good amount of "sand treatment".

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it? I'll get some pics tomorrow.

About the only thing I can think of is new lights, but I'd like to avoid that.

How would I take some deep scratches out of a headlight? I was in an accident and I didnt' replace the headlight cuz it really doesn't bother me that much. I have like 3 or 4 pretty deep scratches in the corner of the driverside headlight and there's white paint inside the scratches, if I just knew a way to take the embedded paint out I could live with it lol

Take some emery cloth and sand only the scratch untill you can no longer feel it then go over the area with Meguiar's #17 plastic cleaner and #10 polisher.

Alright this is my thoughts for you 232, this is what we did to my buddy's civic. Go get some sandpaper buy 600, 800, 1200 and 2000 grit sandpaper. Also buy 3m fine cut polish, and some turtle wax paste polish restorer cant remember the name, its got a little bit of grit in it. Alright take and sand down with 600 until the headlight is all roughed up no more of that junk you're talking about on the headlight, then 800, then 1200, then 2000. The 2000 will make the headlight nice and smooth and should be fairly clear, keep working it until it's pretty clear. Then the turtle wax stuff apply and remove a few times. Then finally polish with the 3m fine cut, and your headlight should look like new.
