Re: Front Lip and Headlight Scratches.
I stopped by Auto Zone and purchased a good amount of sand paper ranging from 500 grit to 3000 grit. I started with the 500, making sure to wet sand the entire lens evenly. From there, I moved to 800 grit, then 1000, then 1500, then 2000 then 3000. After the 3000, I still had a small amount of haze on the lens, so I purchased the Mothers headlight buffing kit (http://www.mothers.com/02_products/07250.html) and with a bit of their compound paste the lights came out great. I will eventually re-do them as I did rush a bit and missed some of the corner areas, but they look so much better than before.
Had pics at one point, but lost my iPhone...
