i've tried searching as I'm sure this must have come up before !

The plastic screen over the rev counter on my Civic has some scratches on it which I find really annoying - has anyone had any luck removing them ?

thanks

I've got some on my screen which was already there when i bought the car, but have not yet tried removing them. Just assume they are permanent, I can't see them coming off...?? :confused:

I just wondered whether or not a light polish might work ?
Yes it will, use a plastic scratch remover for fish tanks. I've already done this and got great results, it'll take a bit of elbow grease but well worth it.

cool - where did you get it from ? ANd this is definitely for the plastic screen covering the rev counter ?

Yes for the plastic covering the rev counter. Search eBay for 'Biorb scratch remover' this is the one I used, best £2.95 I spent. Try not to use it on the button surround though as the colour will start to come off.

well the anti reflective coating doesn't work very well !
Very true, if it's scratched a lot like mine was just remove the anti glare coating altogether. The angle of the dash screen is such that I've had no problems with reflection after the coating was removed.

I think I remember seeing the before and aftermath of that. It came out amazingly well.

Unfortunately I have this one long scratch (not deep; you can't feel it if you move your finger over it), on the plastic bit around that area (where all the buttons are), will this polish work on that bit, too?

yep... only use this if you want the purple anti glare stuff off the plastic, i had a heart attack when i seen the purple stuff on my white cleaning towel and thought i was going to have to get a new dash , but when its all off the dash with 20 mins elbow grease it comes up looking brand new and the ive not noticed one bit of difference with glare in eyes or off dash . . . . its a result for shabby looking dashes
