Scratch lower synthetic rear window

While I was away at sea last month, one early November morning, my dear wife used an ice-scraper on the lower part of rear window , and guess what...? Annybody knows of anny product, for this material, to maybe not make scratches disapear but maybe hide them a bit?
Must say thumbs up for a cool site!

Welcome to the forum!

I know of no such product myself, but I bet someone on the forum does!

BTW, post a picture of your car when you can.

The best I can suggest is to put a Civinfo sticker over the scratch

Toothpaste? If it doesn't work then it will at least smell fresh!

Hi,

The following post may help. I've used the Brasso trick in the past on plastic with very good results. Follow the instructions carefully for best results.

HTH

Don't you dare use my Brasso trick. It's not only plastic, but has the coating on the external face of it. Brasso or toothpaste will take it right off.
My Dealer has removed slight scratches on the said plastic section of his cars, using ScratchX only and then VERY carefully, on a small area at a time.

Well even if there is no solution to my small problem, I“m very grateful for the quick response. So I have promptly ordered a sticker. Should cover some of the mishap!
