Fine scratches on gauge covers

I noticed when I clean my plastic gauge covers where the speedometer and tachometer are, there are some fine scratches. I can't seem to get rid of them and wonder what you guys recommend to remove it. Will Plastix remove the scratches?

Yeah mine are bad as well.....previous owner must of used something other then a micro fiber cloth....it is too late for me, but you could try plastix.

I have heard using clear nail polish for such things as well......I once tried and made a mess, so be careful.

I tried Plastic X and it didnt do justice, they might be too deep to remove

it will be hard to use plastx on it because you might spend 30 minutes per guage lol try it on your shifter first its the same plastic as the gauge one... i bet that plastic on your shifter is pretty scratched :P

so did you try it on the shifter first?
probably why you are wondering why i said 30 mins because you cant put pressure on that plastic because its hallow and if you press too hard it might break :P the plastic that we have will get scratched easily even if you use a wet microfiber :P i would take that plastic out and use plastx on it working with a solid backing like a counter in your kitchen or table :P then after you clean it lay a clear plastic that you use in your cell phone :P or clear bra ^_^v

Mine's not scratched at all.

The solution for keeping your shifter in mint condition is to cover it with HK
