Default Does Anyone Know?

Does anyone know of a good product for removing scuff marks from Lexan. I have a new show body that got scuffed during transport and I'm looking for something to buff it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you're talking about black marks from the track or tires, motor spray or goo-b-gone work very well. I don't know of anything that will repair the plastic if you're talking about it being scratched.

Ultra fine sandpaper will help too. Like 8000-12000 grit. Wet sand it and pick up some Parma body wax for post repair.

For removing rubber, grime, and even that ground in pavement the best thing I've found is Parma's Fashine body cleaner. It's way better than motor spray because it doesn't attack the lexan and it doesn't stink (unless you don't like lemon).

If you've got scratches to remove, just get a plastic polishing kit from an auto parts store. Works like a champ for those road rashes.

I like Parma Fashine body wash & wax. It takes off all the track marks, and really makes the body shine nicely. I just did my trans-am body with it after 4 weekends of negect, and most of it shines like new. There are a few heavily scratched areas from rollovers that it wouldn't take out.

It's the year 2010. Shouldn't vacuum cleaners be quieter by now?

I have found for haze marks and smaller scuffs that good ol furniture polish works.
