Do you have and before/after pics?
A bit of a necro thread, but one worth reviving, I think.Like the OP, I've used Novus plastic cleaner/scratch remover to clean up a few celidor scales in the past. However I'd never tried to polish translucent scales. Today I pulled out a translucent blue Tinker and attempted to clean up some fairly rough scales.....Before, shield side:(Image removed from quote.)This side has some scratches and one spot, almost right on the shield, where I grabbed the SAK while I had some acetone on my fingers. Instant melt!Before, driver side:(Image removed from quote.)Again, some scratches and an acetone melt spot. Ooooops.The spa regimen:(Image removed from quote.)I went in order of 3-2-1. Seemed only smart. After, shield side:(Image removed from quote.)Much better! This was accomplished in less than 5 minutes. The acetone thumb print is still fairly prominent, but overall a nice improvement. I think if I want to remove that thumb [rint some automotive sandpaper might be called for. After, driver side:(Image removed from quote.)Again, much better! I suspect that with a bit more time and effort, this could be made even sharper, but I was satisfied with the results. Overall, I was really please to see the scale 1) NOT turn some cloudy, opaque color, and 2) some significant scratches get cleaned up easily. I'm giving these Novus products two big thumbs up. For those of you who might have a hard time finding Novus. I got this product and a motorcycle dealer's shop. It was recommended for taking scratches out of windscreens and even face shields. So if Novus isn't available, you might try looking for a plastic polish at a place that sells helmets or plastic windscreens. Now....sandpaper that acetone melt spot out....or leave it be......
Very nice!Does the kit have a brand name? And, does it work on translucent scales....?
Brandname is Gunson on my kit.Son of a gun I guess
