headlight

I got into an accident a few weeks ago and just got the car back. I rear ended a van. anyway the driverside headlight assembly is new and the passenger is old.. looks like crap. Is the any where you can get a new plastic cover or do you have to replace the whole assembly?

Try polishing it using Mothers aluminum wheel polish first (vigorously polish it, use a motor-tool with a small buffing wheel if you have one), sometimes this can be a cheap fix.

I have only seen entire assemblies, never just the lenses. Cheapest I have found the assembiles is $98.
