Got smacked by a piece of road debris on the way home tonight

I'm trying to decide how much of a priority I should place on getting this fixed. The right front headlight is slightly cracked and the paint is scratched. Looks like the paint scratches might buff out, but I fear that the replacement lens won't e available until some time around when the first SpaceX colony is founded on Mars. Pics below.

I would get it fixed, just to prevent it from getting worse and eventually damaging the light and you losing a headlight at some point. Unless you can seal it over with a clear epoxy or resin to keep moisture, etc out. That does suck tho.

I was pleasantly surprised by parts availability at my local Tesla shop, by the way. They had the undercarriage aero shield on hand when I ran over a ladder.
