[SOLVED] Plastic Side Window Problems

I have a fractal design Focus G that comes with plastic side panel window with what I can only assume is some kind of acrylic. Problem is, the quality on it is so poor that literally anything will scratch it. Eventually this bothered me and I tried to remove the scratches and polish the panel with toothpaste. Second problem is, my brain is completely smooth and I made the problem way worse than it was before as now there are permanent streaks on the panel and the window appears murky. Does anyone with better knowledge of plastics know anything that might be worth trying to fix it?

PlastX is cleaner and polish! Really, any plastic polish ought to do if it isn't too severe.

It's a fine entry-level case, but it is an entry-level case, which is why the acrylic rather than tempered glass. Acrylic is really easy to damage, but the margins on these budget cases are tiny, so it's hard to expect better materials!

It made it better than before, still not 100% but Ill keep trying every now and again; so thanks for the suggestion.


You might want to just clean it with alcohol and spray a coat of clearcoat over it. You've already done most of the DIY type work
Probably will try this too; problem is alcohol is sold out everywhere. Checked Walmart today when I picked up the plasticx and literally three shelves worth of iso alcohol were completely empty. Bummer too, wanted to put a new cpu heatsink in, but can't really do that without iso to clean the old paste off the ihs.
