Is there any type of polish out there to get fine scratches out of a HU face plate without ****ing it up?

Applesauce Polish Restores the Original Finish to Your iPod (http://www.applesaucepolish.com/)

pretty sure this sh#t would do the trick

Edit:
in the customer testimonials.... "Honestly...WOW...took all scratches off.
iPod...even CD player faceplate."

Try scratch remover for glasses but idk about that for sure. Just go to walmart optical or something. My glasses are plastic and it works all the same but that apple sauce kicks *** for ipods

Still have you used that before on a HU?

Ive got some NuFinish Scratch Doctor in the garage, but dont think thats for plastic. Its more of a paint scratch type of remover.

Yes, I've used it on my CD5100.

Words of advice, TAPE OFF THE AREA YOU ARE DOING. I had some get underneath the screen of the faceplate on mine and I had to take it apart. :crap:

No, the scratches weren't a big enough deal to worry about (or for a camera to pick up) in my case, I just did it for the hell of it.

The ones on the CD7000 are really faint and hard to see unless its in the right light, but I have seen them and cant forget them.

I've used Meg's ScratchX as well. Just put a tiny bit on a microfiber cloth and polish away... tape is definitely a good idea to protect the buttons as well.

You have any pics?

No pics, but it worked well on an old Alpine I had.

Did you use ScratchX or SwirlX? They have them both and I was looking at the PlastX from Meguirs.
