Toothpaste .. now that brings back some memories, when one didn't have all the polishing products around, I was taught by my ma and grandma, use toothpaste to clean silverware.
It does really work, so yeah shoot for that, use some glaze after that and finish with hmmm wax or something cleaning wax maybe ?
I got an extra gauge cover myself, will try to remember to take some pics of the process

face plate wax
When I worked at a paper mill we used Johnson liquid floor wax on out plastic face shields to take out the scratches and it worked ok, but if you have deep scratches I doubt anything will help to take them out. Hope this helps. Dan

Polishing Plastic Gauge Faceplate
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with trying to polish the plastic clear face plate that goes over the gauges. These face plates tend to get very fine scratches and after 56 years in a car they become hazy. If you have had success with this please explain what you used and how you went about it.
