For scratches on the back of jewels, if it was from sanding, I know it's a little late now, but don't sand. I just found this out tonight... although I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but get yourself a can of carb cleaner. That stuff took the paint right off and the jewel is crystal clear without sanding and no toothpaste.

If it's too late, then toothpaste will work, but it just takes a while.

if u wanna get sanded scratches out really good go to an auto parts store and get an alluminum not chrome polish...works like a charm...sand smooth first with 1500 grit sandpaper before using polish

Scale car auto modelers use toothpaste as the final buffing compound, it creates a great shine on models.

Hmm I thought toothpaste would remove the color from the jewel? I think I read that somewhere unsure.gif ...maybe it was just polishing

Yeah, Novus Scratch Remover is the shiznit when it comes to getting scratches out of plastic.

I've used it on all kinds of stuff: Laptop screens, motorcycle parts, my iPod, and yes, an Xbox jewel.

You can get it cheaper other places than from Xoxide anyway.

hey guys im new here.

I do a lot of work in the automotive paint industry so I just applied my techniques to when I sanded the back of jewel, now it haws 0 scratches.

I stripped the paint off with paint stripper then sanded with 800 grit then finally I held it in a bowl of water with 2000 Grit wet. This got it very very clear with only the slighetest scraatches left from the 2000. Now being the pick bastard I am I rubbed it back with Mcguaaries(spelling?) polish glaze I use on cars i've just sprayed to do the same, it's a mild abrasive and also fills the small scratches, after about 4 or 5 coats of rubbing then polishing it's crystal clear. =) We use it on car paint for showcar finishes and it works on jewels too =)

Hope this helped, I'll try toothpaste on another jewel I have. Sounds too easy =)
