I have a few nasty scuffs on my hood screen. Can anyone advise how to remove them or at least make them look better?

Thanks.

The answer is, this is a tough call. If the marks are fingernail catchers, there's little hope.

Renovo's plastic window polish is generally thought to be the best, and it certainly works well on minor blemishes.

Just be aware that the rear panel is a very soft plastic, which marks easily and over zealous attempts to fix that, can make it worse. Don't use any sort of electric powered tool, hand action only. It is much easier to do on a flat surface, but that adds a lot of time to the process.

Thanks Dave. I will try a gentle application if Renovo. It’s a scruff rather than a scratch - caused by the side of a book scraping along the screen when I was putting it on the parcel shelf.

As said Renovo works well

I used Autoglym polish as its light, you just need to work a little more thats all.

Plexus Plastic Cleaner is an amazing product, it's the best there is for cleaning the rear window on a convertible top but it is very expensive at £24.80 for the small 7oz can.

I used this stuff on my TVR rear window and the results blew me away, the 7oz can lasted about a year as you need very little of the stuff but it's still a lot of money for such a small can.

I'm told Clear View is the same stuff for close to a quarter of the price as you get 13oz for £14.00, but I haven't tried it myself.

If its as good a Plexus you'll be amazed at how clear it gets the rear window, I'd still use a light polish first to remove as many scratches as possible first but if you them apply Plexus the results in my experience are a better than new finish, the Plexus not only cleans the window better than anything else it also seems to nourish the plastic so it folds more easily.

If you try the Clear View product please let us know how you get on with it, if its a genuine Plexus alternative you will not be disapointed thumbs

Dave.

Thanks everyone. I have used the Renovo and it got rid of the nasty scruff on the plastic easily. Still lots of other scratches though which the Renovo has not removed. I suppose it's inevitable with the soft plastic used on those windows. Perhaps I will look at Plexus Plastic Cleaner next time I want to polish it up.
