Got one but needs to be polished, or let your local shop make one. Not that difficult...

Hi Leslie,  That cover looks fine how much would you like for it . ?

There is a thread called beolab 4500 display scratches in the workbench area. This shows how to remove the scratches from the covers and what to use.

Did you polish by hand or using a buffing machine, or drilling machine with buffing attachment ?

I'm not sure if the Novus products are enough to remove deep scratches. I bought the Micro-Mesh polishing kit for this particular purpose, and hope that some day I'll have a couple of hours to try it.

Meanwhile, I've read the instruction sheet that came with the kit, and the trick seems to be to never use circular motion. You select the first abrasive grade according to the scratches. Then, you polish in straight lines in the same direction until all that remains are the scratches left by that particular grade. If you made swirls, you can't tell. Then, and only then, you move to the next finer grade and change direction by 90°. Take a shortcut here, and the entire operation will be a failure because the finer grade won't go any deeper than the coarser grade just did.

Obviously follow the instructions of the Novus products, if you try them; I don't know how they are supposed to be used.

I found this at some point. Don't know who it is, but judging from the pictures it seems to work well.

This is exactly the process Mika was describing.

You'll need more than a couple of hours, in my experience.

It does work.........in time!

Maybe I was impatient...

I used circular motions by hand, and now it just looks really scratched!
