How to Remove Scratches from Radio

  visningar 328,093


6 månader sedan

Polishing your radio head unit is safe and easy to do. WARNING: Do not try this on touch-screen or anti-glare screens. Treat the plastic just like you would a headlight. However, be sure to use masking tape to protect the radio button from compound and polish during the scratch removal process. Over time the plastic screen can become a complete disaster from years of wiping and touching which generate micro scratches and swirls. Polishing the plastic will remove the scratches and brighten the plastic giving you a new car feel...even on an old car like this one :) -Larry

Hi Larry, enjoy your work / vids. Question, is there ANYTHING that I can use to protect / rejuvenate vinyl in older 70's and 80's cars? Especially dashboards, keeping the "moisture" in to reduce / eliminate cracking. I store all inside so direct sun is not an issue however, I live in the frozen wasteland of N. MI. so dry and cold are serious. Thanks.

This is great since I'm very much into car audio and collecting "old school" car audio as well. I actually use to be a mobile detailer and have a little knowledge of polishing and buffing. In fact Kevin aka Buff Daddy himself helped me out a few months ago before my last spinal surgery (4 in 3.5 years) by sending me a nice assortment of small pads. I'm so thankful for that. Of course he sent some of the1inch pads. I have been using my Milwaukee 12v right angle drill as well as the regular drill for more RPM's. I've used several different compounds and polishes but I've quickly realized that once you're comfortable with the process, the mow down method works wonders with this type of plastic when it's heavily scratched. Using a stiffer pad seems to do better as it's more porous and hold more of the removed plastic....not clear. I had to quickly realize there is a huge difference between the two. The plastic simply will not come out of the pad easily with a MF towel and needs a deeper cleaning. This is why I sit out 3 of the burgandy pads and preload them with 105. I know, that sounds ROUGH but I promise you what you make back in less time trying over and over heating up the screen, makes this a safer process. After it's preloaded, I a tiny micro drop of 105 in the center of the pad, if any, since I want the pours open to catch the plastic. With the drill being used, I'm only hitting around 900ish RPM's. This is pretty slow and work left to right and then up and down....not till the compound is diminishing. I look at my 3 pads as one big pad. I do this process2 complete cycles with 1-1-1....1-1-2...cadence. Hopefully that makes since. I then quickly wipe the product from the screen (don't have to remove everything) remove the pad, grab the other, put it on, and go right back. Repeating the above process. Then one more time. I don't even finish the compound out like you would on paint. All I'm doing, in my words, is chemically sanding the plastic. Just like water keeps the paper from clogging when wetsanding, the 105 is doing this with pad while adding abrasives along with the cutting ability of the pad itself. This is much faster than what I was doing before which was working a polish in slowly with a soft pad. This was heating the plastic up as it was taking much longer especially if there was deeper scratches. I now clean all the compound up and polish out with 205 and yellow pad then black pad. I forgot to mention that I have a container of rather warm water and Dawn to throw the pads in as soon as I'm done. This keeps the plastic that was removed to set up and harden in the pad. Just my process. Again, I worked on maybe 20 headunits, rare and expensive first with old method as I progressed and moved into this new one.
