    Repairing scuff marks on high gloss plastic

    Hi there,

    I saw a demo model of an internet radio in a local store that is being sold at a signicant discount. The face of the device is fine, but the top of it has what I would desribe as scuff marks. The top of the radio is made of a high gloss plastic of some sort. I wouldn't care about the scuffs if it wasn't for the fact that I want to put it near my bed. Any suggestions on a way to remove (or at least reduce) the scuff marks?

    Thanks!

    Meguiars Plastx Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish - clean & polish all clear plastic panels and convertible top windows.

    I used PlastX on my monitor stand which is a black piano finish. It worked really well took some elbow grease but it came out nice.

    Depending on the depth of the scratches they might require minor sanding with polishing cloths (3600, 4000, 6000, 8000, 12000) and a once over with some Novus plastic polish.

    I have used PlastX on my PS3 and the plastic wood trim in my truck did a very nice job of cleaning it up removing swirls and scratches.
