yeah, basic route is something like 400 grit, 800 grit, SOS pads, brasso.

I saw in an old old science and mechanics handbook that "rouge" lipstick could be used for reshining dull plastics, dunno if that would be similar to jewelers rouge with a fine iron oxide in or something, and if they still make lipstick like that or not.

Hmmm on a brief experiment, apparently not, tried rubbing some of the wife's on a scratched up key fob and it didn't seem to do a damn thing.

I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice

Toothpaste is a fine abrasive, like Brasso. Look up info on repairing scratched CDs for other fine abrasive suggestions.

I'm pretty sure that Rouge is not lipstick, it's supposed to go on cheeks or something.

This sig may return, some day.

pretty much any fine powder of a hard material will do lol. to brighten up dull plastics you can use paint cleaner that says it removes oxidation, hence what usually clouds up plastics too.
