    Default Eliminating scratches on the piano black finish

    I have some fine, but long scratches on the piano black finish on one of my speakers. I don't think any of the scratches are deep and go through the paint/finish.

    What can I do to eliminate those scratches? Any advice on the buffing material?

    Thanks!

    I bet the President-F1nut will have an excellent recommendation for you.

    If you drag your finger nail across it do you feel the scratch, if yes then the paint is broken.

    I suggest safe-cut to remove scratches that are not into the paint.

    Fortunately, it's all good and flat, so just scratches on the finish... What's 'safe-cut'?

    Yes, oddly enough as I'm here more than there.

    You're also bad ... and ... you're nationwide. I have it from highly trustworthy sources. That's gotta count for something.

    Hate piano finish now BTW. Too much trouble if kids can reach it: things just always seem to happen (mmadden, take note!).

    Staying away from Daddy's audio stuff is a high priority in my boys early training. ;) Of course that didn't stop them from taking the grill from my RTi12 and using it as a ramp to climb onto the chair thus breaking it into 3 pieces. No it didn't.
    Time for some tough love. So far, they've kept thier sticky fingers away from the shiny uPro4k

    I don't care for the Piano Gloss either--seems to be a dust magnet too.

    The high gloss on the mp4k seems a lot more durable than my lsi9's
