Okay, I just learned a lesson the other day! My neighbor kid came over and asked if he could mow my lawn or wash my car so he could get enough money to go see some wierd movie. I said I just washed my car and my lawn is taken care of by the owner's lawn service, BUT he could wash my bike! Since it was plastered with bugs from a 440+ mile ride, I knew it needed a good wash job. I even set up the hose and bucket and everything for the kid. I figured what harm can a 10 year old do to a parked bike.
I don't blame the kid, after all, he was only trying to do the best job he knew how. BUT, he discovered a Scotch-Brite pad in my garage, and thought it was the best thing to use on the bug-splattered head light. NOT! Oh well, he did get the bugs off, AND his mom is HOT (so I didn't want to smack him or chop him up and toss him into the dumpster). Hey, it wouldn't have been a problem if the headlight lens was glass, but it's plastic! And his intentions were good.
NOW I NEED A NEW LENS! Mother F
Any ideas if a massive smear of Scotch-Brite scratches can be removed from a plastic headlight lens? Or, if I need to buy a new one, where would I find the best price (I don't EVEN wanna know what Honda charges!). I do have some stuff called Scratch-X that I bought for my old Taurus headlights that didn't really work. Should I try this?
I'm still visible to oncoming cars, and I can still see at night (although I try to be in by dark because I'm sort of "anti-deer-splatter").
Hey, there is a bright side to all this, and a way of making good out of evil:
All the bugs are gone now
AND he only did the headlight, NOT any other part of the bike! (There MUST BE a god!)
I don't know if I should:
Or if I should:
But I do know one thing:
