Scratched INON UFL-165AD

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

On my last trip to the Red Sea I managed to put a large scratch in my INON UFL165AD :)

 

Any advice as to how best to remove it will be greatly appreciated.

My local INON "pusher" wants 330 Euros to repair it which I find quite steep.

You can try http://www.novuspolish.com/

 

I did once to repair my UFL. But it was time consuming to repeat 1,2,3 until the surface was acceptable.

You could also try micromesh paper.

 

I scratched mine (not as badly as yours!) and fixed it using micromesh paper (bought on ebay) followed by the polish suggested in the previous post.

 

Worked perfectly, it took a bit of elbow grease but it now looks as good as new.

 

There might be some kind of optical coating that gets sacrificed (anti-glare maybe?) but can't say I've noticed any difference.

 

With a scratch that deep I think you're going to have to use the sandpaper - its scary at first because the whole thing becomes opaque, but miraculously as you progress to the finer grades it becomes perfectly clear.

Hi,

i also use Micromesh and it works very good. It takes a few hours to repair the scratches but its worth.
