Anybody ever heard of using Brasso on your instrument cluster to remove scratches?? I just read this on another site and had never heard of that before.

Anybody done it or have any input???

I think that Brasso might be alittle bit too abrasive for the plastic instrument cluster. I would recommend something like Novus #2 to remove the scratches. I would then follow up with Novus #1.

As Pats300zx said above try something a bit milder. If that doesn't work, try some Brasso.

We (Old Army JROTC) used to use Brasso on out name tags which is a white sheet of plastic with a thin sheet of black plastic over it. The black sheet was pebbled in texture and we used a scotch brite pad to smooth it out, then spent a good day rubbing Brasso into the plastic and oh boy the resulting finish was smooth and glossy black. Now I don't have a nametag to wear on my uniform.

This is different than clear plastic though. It will work, but you have to follow up with something finer.
I have been had it, lol...
