Removing Fine Scratches On Windows


rizzo

Recommended Posts

A lot of people in the MG world use a product call Greygate (I think) for cleaning and polishing out scratches on the soft top plastic windows - I haven't used it myself BUT I am told the RAF use it on their Perspex (or whatever they are made of) canopies.

 

I am not sure where you get it but I will try and find out when I log into the MG BBS later. :P

Fenwick's scratch remover. We had a trucks rear view mirror scrape one of our windows last year. Got some of Fenwick's scratch remover and after several light application no more scratches, You can get it from most caravan accessory shops.

For light surface scratches Brasso works. just a small amount, gently rubbed in then polished off with a clean cloth. Keep repeating until scratch disappears.

I use Greygate available direct from Greygate Chemicals as posted above by Ted. The last lot that I bought was £10 for 2 bottles inclusive.

 

It should last you for years.

 

We used it on aircraft canopies going back 40 years and they still use it today. There must be something good about it. :)

I'll second the use of Brasso, but if you're unsure about it's abrasive quality, you can always use the less abrasive version, Silvo. They both work well if used on a small area at a time. Don't use too much at a time and don't press too hard, let the polish do the work.

Hi Ted,

 

I just noticed you have an MGF. I have a British Racing Green one and my husband Dave has an MGB GT I think its 1968, in excellent condition, kept in the garage (his baby) We are also members of the MG owners club.

 

Just thought I'd say hello, as we are a friendly lot :)

HOW DO YOU GET THE SCRATCHES??????

 

I have got the tube of Fenwicks stuff but not yet got round to using it but how do we get the ***** things in the first place?

I have used Fenwick's scratch remover and it worked just fine. I also used the same for removing stubborn bug marks when down in Spain (they get baked on). I'm not sure about using metal or alloy polish as the effects on the acrylic are unknown.
