Help with my face (warning too)

Warning.........This is what happens when you use chemicals on you face<P>
I thought this was some sought of disease as it got worse when cold, more foggy.
Ive taking it off and I can see that it actually has marked, burnt or melted the top layer of plastic.<p>
I have tried toothpaste it does help a bit but not much.
can anyone help me out here as what I can use to clear it again?

I've never had much luck in removing this stuff, which seems to appear if you use a spray on glass cleaner.
With tootpaste, make sure its the white stuff, gel type doesn't have the abrasives in it to work.

Maybe some cut n polish will take it off but it might leave scoring, worth a try in a hidden area though.

I think it's the face of his dash? The dash is tinted, to the slightest chemical cleaner (even glass cleaner) errodes it..

I had a can of brasso in my hand last night, reading it

ithought it might do more harm,it mentioned all metals

and not plastic at all, coz the face is

perspexs(spell)<p>
this is really frustrating me, coz I got nice new red

dials, have put them on and all, but I got to clean my

face before I put it back together, to check them

out.<p>
heading out the door to get some brasso
