    . Hey Guys, I was wondering if it was possible to remove a scratch from a Classic Prime windshield. I see some scratch removers but I was wondering if they were safe.

    Thanks for any advice

    scratch removers sound like snake oil to me.
    how can you remove a defect?
    you can fill it up, but you can't remove it!

    Uh... that's what it does. Same thing with car paint scratch "removers". They fill the scratch with probably a clear coat or something of that nature.

    I'd think any cd scratch remover should be fine for it but I've never had to test it myself.

    I think some cell phone dealers have scratch fillers that you can use on screens, so it might work for clear plastics as well.

    Yeah, there have been a couple threads on Novus, its great stuff.

    I used it on my pinball machine to bring some of the plastics back to life.

    If the scratch isn't too deep, you can use Turtle Wax. I use it on CDs quite a bit as well :)  Turtle Wax also helped me take care of the Cosmic Shelf Rust on MP Megs a while back, oddly enough. :lol

    well depending on the scratch you can cover it with future if it is more of a gouge though it will not work well. if you use this you will want to do the whole window and then probably all the rest because of the gloss effect
