hi!!
so i have a keychain i used to have on my bag that i want to display now, but it's got scratches from the outside world!!! here's the keychain in question: ITEM #790650

i apologize for the photo quality in advance, was using my phone camera and it really sucked and made me cry out of frustration lol. but i used a different device and it worked better but still not great:/

so here's a picture of him from the front, nothing unusual...

but when you take a closer look, he's covered in scratches!!!! one of them you can physically feel if you touch it, but the rest you can't

there's a good amount of scratches near his feet too...

does anyone know how i can get rid of these scratches? there was too many answers on google and it overwhelmed me so i thought i'd make a post here myself lol. any help is appreciated<3

PlastX works great, usually have some around for car use
Nothing fancy/exotic, and you can find it anywhere (Walmart, parts stores, etc.)

BuyMyFigs2 months ago#103298703Those scratches are so minor I'm not sure it's worth worrying about. But it took me all of 5 minutes to find how to fix it. Rub with wet 800 grit sandpaper, then dry 800 grit sandpaper, then polish with metal polish. Seems like a lot of work for a $7 keychain in my opinion, especially considering supplies would cost more than twice that. they’re a lot more prevalent irl, the pictures dont really help</3 maybe itd just be better to keep it and maybe get a new one, thank you though:]

2. Polish w/ microfiber and Tamiya Compound Coarse
3. Polish w/ microfiber and Tamiya Compound Fine
4. Polish w/ microfiber and Tamiya Compound Finish
5. ???
6. Profit.
