Someone decided to screw around with my car. My passenger side twin post mirror has 2 nice long scratches on the glass. Anybody know how to remove them or do I have to go to gm parts direct and order another passenger side twin post mirrors I wouldn't be stressing about it but its really noticable and its obstructing my view out of my mirrors

i dont think theres much you can do about scratches in glass. Best bet is too just replace the glass shouldnt be to expensive.

Normally you could just replaced the glass, but the passenger side mirror is slightly convex. Try a local wrecking yard. You might be able to pick up a used mirror for cheap and take the glass out of it.

If they scratched aren't too deep and just very fine, you could try some chrome polish.

I have non-dual post mirrors on my 02' GA and it has had small fine scratches that look like they came from a piece of steel wool or something. Is there a big difference between chrome polish and polishing compound(the stuff you use on car paint)? Or are there other ways of fixing it? I can live with it because its been that way for more than a year already and im not going to pay money and effort to find a new piece of glass to put in there.
