    hello all,ive cleaned my highly polished walnut wood trim with what a thought was a very very soft cloth,which had a little bit if autoglyms auto glass glass cleaner on it
    when finished it looks like ive tried to do my worst on the finish with some wire wool
    fortunately its a small area near to the idrive,,but there is some swirls on the main trim that im wanting to get out
    can anybody please recommend a succesful product to remove these marks AND leave a highly polished finish
    thanks in advance

    Hi, an old friend of mine that dealt in antiques used to use tea, coffee and fag ash (yes im being serious!) to cover scratches in wood. You need to mess about a bit to get the shades right, but it does work, ive done it myself. Then cover it with a decent clear wood wax and polish it.

    It'll most likely be just swirls in the top lacquer.

    T-cut, and even brasso will polish the plastic to brand new.

    + 1 as the end says, it will be in the top coat and will polish out with something abrassive to remove a tiny layer
