For anyone who has a hand me down clock, or an old scratched up clock do this......

open up the housing....

pop off clear plastic face....

wet sand the front...with 2000 grit sandpaper if you wet sand the back you will lose your numbers and or markings not good....

polish front with Meguier's Ultimate Polish (or your fav polish) but this really works....

polish back a lil bit, but not needed since its not open to the elements so there shouldn't be any wear....

put a bit of glue (crazy glue) onto the 4 pins that hold on the clock face....

enjoy your brand new clock....!

I need to do this. I noticed some scratches when I put my custom clock face in.

Thanks for the writeup.

It was actually so bad that i could see the reflection of the scratches on the white face when the sun hit at certain angles.
This would also work with the Otis and ATC since there are no letters or numbers to worry about

Also works for instrument cluster lens (but don't panic when you notice what appears to be a crack in the plastic projecting radially from the odometer reset rod hole - it's a molded in line - I guess used for machine registration during manufacturing? - maybe, maybe not, but in any case, it is made that way - it's not a crack). :)

Yep, was actually thinking of that. Basically anything clear plastic you want to freshen up.

just an FYI dont do this on the ATC or OTIS/EVIC just tried it on a junkyard otis and didn't like the end result.

Never had a problem using 2000 grit and polish on an atc or otis. I've actually done it on over 70 ebay atc repair auctions with no mention of not liking the result.

I found at least with mine, it dulled it and took away the glossy finish. To each their own, if your happy with the results thats all that matters.
