    Removing Scuffs from FX Hood

    I have some scuffs on the hood and front area from the previous owner. Will these come out? If so how? Wet sand? Plastic Restore? I did use ScratchX on one spot and it didn’t help.

    Get some compound and a polish. But if the scratches are deep enough that you can feel them with your fingernail, it might not come out. But I’m sure some compound and polish will make it better. Can always take that part off and bring it to a body shop and they can repaint it.

    Rubbing compound or polishing compound? If I can't get them out it's not a huge deal but if I could get them done it would be awesome. They have been there since I bought it last year.

    Rubbing compound first then finish it with a polishing compound for the gloss and shine. You can also order that part from Yamaha already factory painted if you really want it perfect.
