Scratch Removal?

Anyone know how to remove scratches from the plastic mirrors? I went out to a mud hole today and the trail to get there was a little tight in some places. Now my mirrors have some scratches and I want them gone. PS No, I did not take my truck in the mud

If they are painted plastic, the process is the same as removing a scratch from a hood, fender, etc.; use a high-quality polish.

If they're not painted, there's not much you can do.

The only way to remove those scratches is to rid your psyche of it being an issue.

Especially if you venture into the woods

True but I don't have plans to off road. My brother failed to tell me the road we had to take was tight in places and I could've gotten stuck. Now my baby has scratched mirrors.
