    Acrylic refinish

    Anybody with experience sanding scratches out of acrylic and polishing it back to new? Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated!

    Go slow with it. Use an orbital sander that you can dial down the speed. If you need one I can let you borrow it. Don't sand down just a scratched areas, feather it out really good.

    Thank you! So how would you recommend getting down into the corners well?

    Are you talking about where two pieces meet or, where three pieces meet?

    Those corners will have to be done by hand.
