Hi,
I’ve used this technique on white acrylic and have not been able to achieve the finish that you have. I’ve gone through the listed steps but my end result was not the shiny acrylic it previously was and the scuff marks from the wet and dry paper I used are still visible. Any advice at all?
Thank you!

Ultimate Handyman it’s definitely acrylic - this is the only technique I’ve come across so I assumed it would work - not sure if any mobile businesses do this professionally as I’ve pretty much made a mess of it!

Are you 100% certain that it's acrylic?
You should be able to polish out a scratch in acrylic, as demonstrated in this video.
They use this technique to polish out scratches on aircraft canopies.

Ultimate Handyman I had a few scratches on a large 1.9M white acrylic disk - I began with using wet 600 paper using circular motions and moved onto the wet 1200. I then used rubbing compound and finished with metal polish (the finish being worse then I began with lol - the scratches from the paper all very visible) are you able to advice where I have gone wrong..
Thanks for your swift reply!

It's important that the wet and dry paper is used in every step, as effectively what you are doing is scratching away at the surface. When you get to the last grade of wet and dry paper the surface should be scratched all over, but these scratches should be removed with the silver polish or acrylic polish. Some people have recommended toothpaste for the final polish, but I have never tried that.
Thanks for the comment

Thanks for reply -I, had to polish at least four times w/ different scratch polish and compound .I'm going to use an orbital drill or buffer. This was quite a problem w/ the sand paper . Maybe I did not sand enough , when I seen the scratches I freaked a bit...Thankyou...

When you use this technique it does scratch the surface, but each time the scratches go finer and finer until you finally polish them out using either acrylic polish or silver polish etc.

Would this work on PVC laminated surface?

you have to clean the part between every grid change as the paper leaves behind particles that again leaves scratches while you are doing the next step

There’s a glossy plastic at my car’s door, does this work?

It depends, this technique will only work on solid plastics. It is best to test out the technique in an inconspicuous area first.

I rubbed some paint off what I thought was a glass mirror with a green scoured! Then wiped with a wet wipe. Then paper towel to dry. Left with a load of smears which I can't get off. Now I think the mirror might be plastic or something. Help please. Have I scratched it beyond repair. Thanks for any advice

It's not a scratch - it is more smears. It is a lot of mirror round a shop wall so new piece would not be an option. Thanks for reply though. Will just have to live with it.

You could try polishing it as per this video, but it might be a better option to buy a new piece of plastic mirror?

Fantastic video, really informative and gets to the point - loved it. I've just bought a used bike helmet that comes fitted with a perspex eye-shield visor. The visor is badly scratched all over (it's old and has had a lot of use). It's possible to see through it but it could be better! As it's clear see-through perspex, would your method for removing scratches work? Thanks in anticipation.
PS. to replace the eye-shield with a new one would cost £50 (it's a real high end helmet).

You should be able to polish out the scratch. I just did the headlights on my van last week with a polishing kit that I bought from banggood. The techniques in this video will work but the polishing kit made it really easy. Thinking about it following this video might be the best bet for good optical quality, they use this technique on some aircraft canopies.

600 grit wet sand, then 1200 grit wet sand, rubbing compound, and metal poish, then you could use automotive lens restorer as the last step. In the summer you can do this in direct sunlight to soften the plastic a little so it doesn't take so much elbow grease and it makes the products you use more effective.
Thanks for uploading this video.

You can polish scratches out of glass using Cerium Oxide Powder, but if the watch is valuable I would let a jeweller do it ;-)

It's doubtful that will be acrylic, so I don't know if it will work or not.

No, if it's aluminium you cannot use this method or you will just remove the paint or powder coating.

Great job! I'm amazed that you got that deep scratch out and restored the surface to be so shiny again.
I'll try this on a turntable dust cover that is scratched up.
Thanks for a great video!

Never start with anything under 1500 Grit,,,,, 2000 grit wet and dry,,,,, must soak in water for 2 hours before using,,,,,. Never use Windex or glass cleaner,,,, it will dry it out make it milky and it will crack in time,,,,,,,
