    I have a few small scratches on my Raven case does any one know of a product or has used a product that has worked for them? I searched the forums but couldn't find any thing. A co-worker had suggested that the scratches could be fixed. He said he bought a product and it worked. Just seeing if any one here could point me in the right direction. Thanks in advanced for your time. If there is a thread on this forgive me I checked and couldn't find any.

    I did a search and found this: http://www.americanframe.com/Products/AcrylicPlexi-glass-Scratch-Remover-Kit__F2100.aspx

    I know rubbing compound can work on bare metal and other materials, but not so sure about plexi. I'm sure there are a couple of options.

    most hardware and automotive stores carry glass and plexiglass, or plastic and plexiglass cleaners and scratch removers.

    Use nail polish remover with acetone...

    **Smacks his own hand** Bad Jr :p. See if you can find any plastic polish at local hardware stores.

    So many options I didn’t know there were that many fixes. Like I stated a co- worker had scratched up a client’s acrylic I believe he said it had artwork behind it. I scratched up my case and was pretty upset with myself. Thanks to every one for the fixes, I will defiantly be getting one of these products. I did not notice the scratches till I added some lights in my case and was like WTF!! :banghead::cry: Now only if I could take some great pictures before and after the fix will work on that.
