Have one with a light scratch, trying to put together perfect Corsa cluster.

I've had great luck polishing lens. The only problem that cannot be polished out is micro cracks in the plastic (sometimes called hazing).

Buy a SIMPLE little plastic headlamp lens polishing kit, NOT a kit that requires an electric drill or buffer!

Most lenses are fine on the inside (where the painted numbers are). Use mild soap, no harsh cleaners before polishing the lens.

I used this Turtle Wax hand kit years ago and the gauge lenses are still good.
