    Difficult one, as some hard plastics can be polished quite effectively, but others don't always respond well. Can we have a picture of the damage please, plus how bad are the scratches? Minor scuffs or deeper?

    In a word no, it took loads of pics but done of them show the marks...
    There are a few, they seems very light, and none deep.
    I guess the trouble is, that it's a high glass finish, and that will show marks...

    Will try tonight when it's dark, maybe that will be better???
    Thanks Dodge

    I take it you have the piano trim interior? The gloss black surround?

    How about Meguiars PlastX plastic polish - works quite well usually. Other very fine finishing polishes should also work well on this type of hard, glossy plastic - Menzerna Final Polish II would be a good choice for sure. :)
