ok i guess this is a good forum to post this in. i bought an ipod skin and theres a plastic piece to cover the screen so it doesnt get scratched. so instead the plastic got all scratched up. now its pretty much unviewable. so what do you guys reccommend for taking out light to medium scratches from plastic. they arent like deep gouges or anything, just enought so that its hard to see unless the light is perfect.

not on the screen, theres a plastic piece that came with the cover the protects the screen, that is what gets scratched instead of scratching the screen. tooth paste? how, like buff it in?

Don't use tooth paste on clear plastic - it will make it hazy. There are plastic polishes out there. You might try some CD polish and follow it with some future floor polish (modelers do that). Why not just buy a new skin??

Also, in the future, you can buy PDA screen protectors and cut them to fit. They are disposable. That might help.

There was a thread not too long ago in here about the same subject. Maybe you can find it.

Novus is what we use at work for plastic #1 is more a cleaner #2 and #3 work on scratches better. For Acrylic flame polishing works well.
