what removes scuff marks on vinyl?

Put a big nasty line across some black 651 with a large rubber water removing squeegee.

tried Avery surface cleaner..........nup

tried tar and glue ........didn't work either.

The jobs finished but this is spoiling it a bit.

Anyone got any ideas.

As Ian has already said, a good wax polish or trusty Mr. Sheen has been known to work...but black is a sod to disguise any marks.

I'd go with something containing a little bit of abrasive to start with. Cutting compound, T-Cut or Brasso.

Then follow that up with wax polish or Mr. Sheen to bring back the gloss, if it needs it.

tks guys

I got some t-cut, some back to black, and some polish, met, or something; anyway, I think the t-cut would have worked if I'd have had time but I could only have a quick go.

That and the polish was slowly working I think.

Try some isopropyl alcohol.
It takes some scratches out of our Paint Protection Film, so may work. Dont know, but give it a go.
