zl-1 radio screen scratch questions

Today while i was pumping gas the wife had an ocd moment and decided to dust my radio screen with a napkin. Needless to say it scratched the sh** out of it. Any suggestions how to get them out without makin it worse?

This makes the scratches go away and protects it, awesome stuff and well worth the price. I have it on the 4pack guages as well http://www.ghost-armor.com/Chevrolet/344.html

There are some good products on the market that will remove them depending on how bad they are but if its just a napkin scratch I imagine its minor. Usually the more expensive stuff is best. I believe Eastwood has some good stuff, but the best stuff I have even seen is called Novus and its very popular in the world of pinball hobbists with all the plastic parts they encounter for scratch removal. Its actually a 3 step system if I remember correctly. The stuff works wonders especially if you have like a dremel tool with a mini buffing wheel on it

Ask your dealer. Believe it or not, there is a TSB out on the scratches on the radio face. The TSB recommends a specific plastic polish and if I recall correctly, it is one of the Meguiar products.

Ive used Meguiars plastic polish to completely remove scratches from instrument panels and radio faces in the past. It works great and you can probably find it at your local auto parts store.

This stuff works great on the radio display. My radar detector cord scuffs the display, and it removes it perfectly every time.
