Scratches on Spider plastic rear window

Hi all,

My Spider, bought a few months ago, has at some stage in its life pre-me obviously had rather careless treatment/washing and ended up with quite obvious fine scratches spread all over it's rear window. There's no discolouration, no kinks, its only these scratches. Has any fellow Spider (or plastic/vinyl rear windowed convertible) owner ever found a plastic window treatment/polish that has worked in clearing up a marked window? Any help or suggestions appreciated!

I had the same problem as you did ozmac, with the small scratches on the rear screen.

I bought some stuff from and it worked really well.

Didn't take them all out, but most of them. Also seemed to make the screen more pliable....

I just bought Renovo plastic polisher from a MX5 website, not sure how well it will work but sure will report it after i use it.
