Trust me I have looked into "refinishing" glass headlights... but haven't found a sure fire method. And I threw away the two broken lenses that I had. Plastic-x won't work for crap. I tried some compound that didn't do crap either.
The compound I tried get 400 grit marks out... and it didn't do anything for the pits. It's little chunks of glass that have been chipped out, the only way you will make that go away is grinding down the surface, and 2000 grit isn't going to cut it.
I don't know anything about polishing glass, but I know it's not like paint/plastic/or metal.
Try looking up refinish a glass coffee table top, hell now I'm going to do some googling.
Holy crap batman, I don't know how I didn't find this thread before. But in the end, I probably still wouldn't do it for the ones I sell because of the amount of time and labor involved. And my luck, I would probably break the lens.
I went to safelite yesterday..they wont touch it. they think it will shatter due to the heat/pressure they would appply. There are some glass polishing kits on the web using optician's rouge...i can't rmeember the compund..cardman paste or something like that...
