Removng Scratches and Haze from a Nitrocelluloid Pickguard

What's the best way to remove light scratches and haze from a nitrocelluloid pickguard?
Thanks, Blackie


Buffing the nitro pickguard is the only way I know.  If the marking is real bad you can water sand with micro mesh sand papers 600 to 2500 grit, then buffing will bring it up to new looking usually.  When you polish and clean the pickguard, don't rub it with a cotton cloth or it will scratch again!  I use and sell 100% lab grade rayon to clean plated parts and pickguard for non scratching since there is no wood pulp fiber in the synthetic cloth.
