What is the best method of removing scratches from the case?

I have purchased a PowerMac3,6, (MMD G4). The tower's case (not the doors) has a number of fine scratches, some are deeper than others. What is the best method to buff out these scratches while keeping the case's mirror-smooth finish?

Thank you,

Wil, fine scratches can be removed with a mild abrasive polish such as Novus #2, or Novus #3. Heavier scratches, such that you can feel with your fingernail, will require some elbow effort to remove with a bit of sanding and buffing. A series of grits (150,400,800) followed by a buffing wheel and available buffing compound, this should restore your case. Check on here to get an idea of how its done. Hope this helps, good luck.

I would honestly just get a new case, they are not that hard to instal if the scratches are that bad. If they are not some Pledge works great.

Please mark me up if this helps : )
