    Default Scratch removal - Perspex mirror

    Not sure which section to put it under, but what do we think? Doable?



    Was thinking some 1500, then machine polish... Would it work or be hazy or not as reflective... Just trying to save myself 15 quid lol.

    I think you might need finer than 1500 grit to be honest. Also reckon it might end up looking like a fairground mirror as it will no longer be flat when you are finished!

    That's what I thought... Gonna try some 1500 and Brasso, if it's good enough for headlights it might work... Anyone any other suggestions.

    Otherwise I'll order and cut another, just bank hol will delay it all...

    Toothpaste works on acrylic watche crystals. There is a cockpit glass cleaner, or polywatch is £3/4. But try the tooth paste!

    Just got rid of it with Brasso, then I've polished it... Can see swirl marks now across it but no marks, gonna machine polish it Monday, reckon that will remove it fully...

    I've been luck here...
