Scratched Display

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have a, Icom W32A HH radio with a few extras including the remote mike. I was planning on selling it on ebay and took it out for one last hurrah. When I picked up the kid he got into the truck with his skateboard and set it against the center console, after a stop the radio slid underneath the skateboard and the grip-tape scratched the display window. :( It was almost new!

 

Is this expensive to have replaced? Should I sell it as is?

I believe that the clear plastic is part of the case and has to be bought as a new case front. I have used plastic polish on my HTs. Meguiars Plastx works well on fine scratches. If the scratches are deep, you may have to get a courser abrasive first. Use a cotton terry cloth towel. Go to a big auto parts store and see what they have in plastic cleaner/polishers.

Check out eHam.net. There is currently an article and thread on how to restore scratched and fogged displays. Looks pretty helpful.
