What's the best way to get rid of scratches on the side windows of my motorhome?

Hi, I use T-cut very gently on a very soft cloth, works for me .:thumb:
T cut has solvents which will damage plastics. You can use Autoglym super resin polish or a specific polish for acrylic.
Some solvents can weaken or craze certain plastics. Solvents can cause cracking around screw holes if they get in. Uncoated Polycarbonate will be dissolved by acetone so beware !

Brasso or Silver polish might be cheaper.
Strange you should ask this, I just this minute put down a motorhome maintenance book explaining how to remove scratches from acrylic windows.
1200 grit wet'n'dry paper and a wooden block.
lots of water and rub in straight lines....8 to 10 times one direction then the same at 90deg, repeating until the scratch has gone.
replace the paper often so as not to cause further damage due to grit build up.
then polish with an open weave cotton cloth using a lot of water and a circular motion.
if the scratch is deep use 800grit or 1000grit to start, then use finer then finer still.
Brasso was brilliant!
Jewellers Rouge, is far and away the best product, as a boy I used to take scratches out of watch and clock faces for my father who was a watchmaker. It is still available, I've seen it on flea-bay:thumb:
