Default Plastic Polish Question

Can I use Mothers Plastic polish on my radio lcd display face cover? It is "smoked" plastic.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike - if it's a smooth plastic, yes you can. Be careful around any lettering on the faceplate, so you don't polish it off, though.

But there really is no way to take out fine scratches in a display window is there? I've tried many things, but from my experience a clear plastic faceplate like the one over your stereo's display is so easily scratched just running a cloth across it will scratch the heck out of it. Even just running a finger across it can scratch them. I too would like to know what could be done because my new accord's display needs cleaning but i'm afraid to touch it. I just don't think there is anything that won't impart fine scratches. Maybe a wet chamois wrung out as much as possible?

You can polish out fine scratches in plastic - it takes a good plastic polish and a proper towel, like a microfiber.

Microfiber, with light pressure, would be preferable to a chamois.

But it wouldn't be possible to make it as scratch free as it was when new, would it?

Used properly, it should be fine. No complaints on any of my cars, where I've used it.
