Angry Get a scuff off

Damit!!! I just put a scuff on my new shield for my Arai. Any one know how or what to use to gently buff it out without making it worse?

Is it a scuff (has residue from whatever it rubbed against) or a deep scratch? Try using a soap solution and a clay bar.

It's just a slight scuff, not deep at all. Thanks.

If it's a scratch you need to just buy a new visor, if it's a scuff then head the advice given above
