Angry Scratch across my radio display

while vacuuming out my truck at my local carwash, the hose ran across my dash and scratched the plastic screen on the display between the knobs (not the touch screen radio). this is all kinds of annoying at night, because the scratch catches all the light coming from the display. does anyone know of anything i can do to fix this? or am i just going to have to deal?

Might sound stupid, but it works, I have tried this on other (non-oem-mopar-decks) and had moderate to good success.

Use a damp (not wet enough that there is any risk of getting water in the deck) soft cloth, and hand buff it with some regular tooth paste. The tooth paste is just abrasive enough to get the job done. It's also a great trick for reviving dead CDs

thee are lots of fine plastic polishes out there...megs and mothers both make one and are readily available OTC at auto parts stores...

you wont get it totally out IMO, but the polish will def make it less noticeable.

Plastic usually doesn't "scratch" plastic. It probably left a plastic streak acrosss your screen. Try taking a microfiber towel and buff it off. jmho
