New shine for "piano lacquer" – scratch removal made easy
For best results you can remove the scratches with the "SONAX Scratch remover for plastics". The special polish should be used with a small polishing sponge, which you can cut down to a handy size with e.g. a carpet knife, so that you can comfortably get at all corners and gaps of the parts to be polished. Apply a little Scratch remover onto the sponge and carefully and gradually polish the surface until the scratches are completely removed. Keep wiping away the residues carefully with the "SONAX Microfibre cloth ultra fine". This soft and highly absorbent cloth avoids new micro-scratches, which may be produced on the highly sensitive surfaces through the wiping off.
It is strongly recommended to tape over the gaps around the surrounding parts, so that no polish residues settle there. For this you should use an adhesive tape which leaves no residues on the material – painting tape is ideal.
"Piano lacquer" panels in vehicle interiors are modern and look stylish. When scratches tarnish the image, a good polish is recommended.
You probably know the problem: The front windscreen is actually new, but already scratched. This is especially disturbing against oncoming light. Potential causes could be a dirty windscreen or wiper blades, but it could also be the trusty old ice scraper.

The vexatious summer topic of insects will probably never cease: Insect dirt looks nasty and it damages the car’s paintwork. The organic “paint devourers” can induce serious damage, particularly when exposed to solar radiation. And the longer it sticks to the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat into the paintwork surface.
When you have a winter windscreen cleaner in the tank and a windscreen de-icer ready to hand, then you actually have the winter under control. Almost: For we continually receive queries asking how to prevent the doors from freezing shut.
The anti-glare headlight lenses have to withstand a lot: climatic influences, UV radiation, acid rain, de-icing salt and road dirt, with time they will ensure that the plastic is matt and yellowed.
A high performance winter windscreen cleaner guarantees clear vision in seconds. That is good for safer driving, but it also has a positive effect on cost calculation.
Although the dirt is not as noticeable on dark lacquered rims, nevertheless they ought to be regularly cleaned, just like the rims in classic design, before those beautiful wheels are attacked by aggressive dirt contamination.
When it’s time to change over to summer tyres, you should take the opportunity to thoroughly clean off the winter dirt contamination and to care for the tyres and wheels. Be sure to use an acid free wheel cleaner.
