    Here I go again...... Its a little thing but opinions here seem fair. When I bought my Tacoma back in December I checked it out before leaving the dealership. I noticed some sticky stuff, probably from some sort of sticker that the dealer pulled off, on the headlight lens up near the hood. So on Tuesday I finally got around to taking some goo gone to the adhesive residue. When I got the adhesive off I realized that the dumbass that scratched the sticker off took a gouge out of the lens with his tool. Its about 1" long and 1/4" wide and about 1/16" deep. He obviously used a razor knife or something really sharp because its a clean cut.

    My concern is two fold. Obviously cosmetically now to me it stands out like a sore thumb. Also with the heating and cooling of the winters and summers here in the south will it cause a crack? Unfortunately I'm an Engineer so I think about these things probably a little too much.

    What do you guys think?
