Just takes a little elbow grease, wish glass could be sanded down

No problem, good luck! If you hit any snags be sure to throw something up on the gen discussion board, it gets the most traffic!

Someone said there is a Car place that will do acrylic for like $100 or $150. I can't remember the name but Black and White Auto comes to mind.

They did a tank for me a few years back, but the owner sold it to a fracnchise and they will no longer work on tanks.

If you go the Novus route I found it locally at the container store of all places. Thier website checks in store stock levels, save a trip

I used the large bottles of mequiars polishing compound in different stages for deep/medium/light scratches and then novus 1 which isnt a polishing compound but a cleaning/antistatic compound. It was MUCH cheaper going that route when buying stuff locally. I never compared the prices when going online. The mequiars stuff is clay based so its like the novus 3 and 2 which is clay/ceramic based also.
