How do I remove micro scratches from my case window panel?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
As topic says. I have a NZXT 410 case and one day, foolishly decided to wipe off the fingerprints with my T-shirt. When I was done the window panel had hundreds of tiny micro scratches on it. It's really annoying because I have lights in my case, so it shines on the scratches and makes them noticable. (When pc is off, can't see anything though).

That being said, is there some inexpensive magic I can buy to get my window panel looking like it did when I first opened the case? I used to see these commercials on tv about scratch removers but those were for cars (and I never really believed in those things anyway). In my situation, I just need these things removes from a small plastic window panel.

Thanks in advance. And remember... No one man should have all that power!

Edit: Guys I don't need wax, I need to remove scratches from a plastic window (unless im missing something, wax makes things shiny)

Sounds fancy, looking for the simplest solution. I'm a black man with $20 in the bank.

Hey thanks for the response, will this work on plastic? Didn't see it anywhere in the description. Also, would it hurt throwing this stuff on th rest of my case?

It's made for everything in a car, especially plastics. It works great on plastic headlamps. I also use it to buff my carbon fiber bike frames after fresh clearcoats.

Alright, one more thing. Do I have to "buff" the thing on my case or can I just get a cloth and wipe it in there. My resources are limited, can't get my hands on a machine.
