    Thumbs up Best plastic scratch/ restorer ever.

    Man I picked me up some of this Novus plastic scratch remover this week. This shit is amazing, I can't believe how great this stuff works. They make a 1-3 kit #3 being for heavy scratches. I just picked up the 1 & 2. The #2 is the scratch remover, you just apply it like a wax do very small areas. The #1 is the finishing clean & shine. The plastic needs to be totally clean I always soak mine in warm soapy water and clean with toothbrush.

    Pic's:



    Can't really tell here but the shell looks like it just came out of the box.





    I hate using magic erasers they dull the shit out of the plastic they are pretty much 3000 grit sandpaper. This stuff is a great alternative it gives the platic that new shinny look like it was when new.

    I know I wish I had taken some but didn't even think at the time. You can see if you look close there is a heavier scratch on the bottom of the shell still. The #3 remover would need to be used on it but like on light non gouged scratches it got rid of all of them. I couldn't find any local store that carries this but kept looking and found it at my local Harley Davidson dealer I'm sure all would carry this so you should be able to get it there. Its used on the lexan / plexi on the windshields to remove those scratches so it has to be pretty good to work on clear plastic.

    I've used Novus before in the past and it works great. Amazon sells the kits.

    Novus is magic, I use it to get scratches out of laserdiscs. It worked great on the glossy part of a ps2 slim as well.

    That's why you should always go somewhere safe when getting rear ended. You don't wanna explain that to the guy at Maaco.

    Damn James that finish looks like a mirror, nice. I need to go grab some #3 and I'll be set.

    Yes I restored a blast city marquee with it. Every pinball site sells it to its how you clean play fields. Just don't use a high number on something clear coated as it will destroy it, like on a playfeild you would never go higher then 1.

    Yes, if you look at the Amazon reviews a lot of motorcycle guys use it on their windshields.

    A motorcycle guy with a windscreen is not a motorcycle guy.

    Anyone ever try this on a WonderSwan or Game Gear?

    With cabinet restoration too! I cleaned up the scratches on my Robotron bezel using the 2-step Novus and it turned out amazing. I wanna try it out on a glossy finish Astro CPO and see if I can make this baby shine again.

    Soaking in water and Oxyclean helps greatly in degreasing and getting off any grime before doing further restoration.

    I used it on my Swan Crystal, it had some nasty scratches on the screen. It didn't eliminate them, but it made all of the scratches a bit smaller/less noticeable. The big scratch is still there, but a hair smaller. I don't have Novus 3, dunno if that would do better.

    On a Game Gear, replacement lens covers are readily available and cheap, I'd just use those. It could be usefull on the shell itself though.

    I'm glad to learn about this stuff - just ordered a batch off Amazon. I'll try it out and post some before and after pics if it works out positively.

    Thanks for the tips, this shit looks amazing. Got a GameBoy Light that could use some love.

    Damn, those resurfaced MVS shells look ridiculously good, Xian Xi!
