On my 02 superduty, I only used windex and paper towels, but it appears that I scratched or hazed the lower section of the instrument cluster. It is annoying when the sun hits it. Any idea how I can polish the plastic to get rid of the scratches.

O'riellys sells some stuff to use on stratched headlight lense. Im unsure of the brand or even what the bottle looks like. I do know that my brother used it on his work car headlights and it cleared them right up. Almost looked brand new after he did that. But it was for plastic headlight lense covers.

Might look into that.

You may want to try a good brand of car wax ...

wax will scratch it worse. once it dries its not good on plastic without a clearcoat surface.

I would think that someone would make a polishing compound for this.

We used tooth paste back in the day... paper towels are your problem.

I ended up using McGuiers #10 plastic polish. So far I have spent about 10 minutes on it and it is about 50% better. This polish can be used by hand and is about 8 bucks for a bottle.
