    Visit/join the Tesla Roadster Owners Group in Facebook and reach out to Carl Medlock. He may have what you're looking for.

    super I found him
    sadly the part was not cheap so I will postpone until I know if I can get the drive battery unbriked
    I will still be interested in a low price damaged panel

    kind regards
    Michael

    Excellent. Try eBay. If you don't find it, place a saved search so you get notified when something comes up. You can also place a WTB on the various Tesla and Tesla Roadster forums and on FB. I wish you the best.

    You can sand it off and have it clear coated with a 2-part urethane automotive clear coat. Any autobody shop should be able to do it for you. The original clear coat was applied over the smooth headlight surface without any sanding for adhesion, which is why it peels off.

    I had success sanding off the film (very much a pain) and the final sanding needs to be 3000 or 5000 grit. Go slow as it takes a while. Then I used the 3M headlight clear coat available only at Orileys. I think it is like $11.
