Clear Coat Scratch Remover Clear Coat Scratch Remover Hot video

There are several clear coat paint scratch removers on the market that do a great job of repairing playfield cracks caused by raised wood grain.  These products are appropriate when the playfield is clear coated and the crack does not extend beyond the clear coat.

These products can also be used with deeper scratches where you want to seal and protect your touch-up paint.

My favorite is the Turtle Wax Scratch Repair Kit.  It includes a clear coat pen, spray lubricant, four sanding pads (2400, 3200, 3600 and 4000 grit) and paint clarifying compound (polishing compound).  The attached video explains the process used to repair minor damage.

I have also used the Quixx Scratch Repair System (it does not include the clear coat pen) which consists of a rubbing and polishing compound (Quixx Instructions).  While simpler to use I don't think it has as much flexibility as the Turtle Wax Product.
