    There was an “old wives trick” using toothpaste to remove scratches from watch face glass. That might work but not sure if you use with a damp cloth too

    Headlight repair kits should do it, pretty much a wet sand and cutting compound. fetches the hazing and scratches out of plastic headlight lenses so should work on a Speedo face. If its light enough just try cutting compound on it first if you've got any

    Damn @Ian63 . Now I'm wondering if this Quixx product is actually Colgate repackaged!:D

    Good posting though, @cronester, because it might be worthwhile testing on fairing screens. The associated video is worth a look too:

    Available on ebay for 8.50: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/QUIXX-Xe...425483&hash=item1a238b87cd:g:h3gAAOSwKQ9aCpJ6
