    Hi All,

    On my car, the piano black trim has some very light scratches.
    What is good to remove them?

    Cheers,

    I found T-Cut to work pretty well on light scratches on my Black ash interior trim. If they are too deep for T-Cut, try a slightly courser cutting compound and then finish off with T-Cut. After that, I simply use Pledge to give it a nice slick feel and shiny lustre

    I've been told that toothpaste will remove scratches from piano black.

    Chrome polish like Autosol can be awesome on wood, although I think 'Peek' works a bit better. Followed by normal car polish. Obviously don't get it on anything else.
    Also works great on shiny/non textured plastics.
