Default F16 type canopy, cleaning removing minor scratches

I need to clean and remove some minor scratches from a F16 canopy. What does the military use?
Thanks

Default one product

the product is called Novus you should be able to find it at West Marine.. 3 stage product. If your scratches are not bad use 1-2. if they are bad use 3-2-1.

Inside and out. If you use this consistantly they will become clear as glass.


Good Luck,
Maximus

When I had a Jeep, I used to use the Novus stuff Maximus referred to. Worked wonders on the plastic Jeep windows.

Thanks for all of the info guys!

Jet Boat- Have you used Micro Mesh's stainless polish kit?
Seems like it would be trick for touchup polishing items like headers, etc.

The air force uses Plexus, it was designed just for canopies. Buy the wipes also they work best. You can get both at Sporty's . Otto

We used Plexus on the race boat, however it will not remove scratches.
