View Full Version : Re: Scratched Window

12-01-2001, 03:42 AM
I got a window kit a while ago and scratched it while putting that blasted lock sttrip in. Is there a way to buff out the scratch? I am going to get a tool to do it from now on but this just sucks.

look at radioshack or some shop of that sort. theres some stuff used for polishing scratches out of handy displays. i think its even named scratch remover. shouldnt bee too pricy and used with a towel theres no chance wrecking the plastic any further like as if you were using water-sandpaper or stuff like that ;)

be careful if you get something to gritty your going to scratch the window even worse. Might just be easier to stop by your local hardware store and get a piece of plexiglass!!!

;D Kewl thanks guys. I figure if it's gona be messed up anyway I will just try to buff the scrathes and if that don't work I will get a new one. Stupid locking strip pisses me off. If anyone knows the name of the tool to get those lil bastards in there that would be great. Thanks!

I heard if you use water it helps it slide in and the water evaporates after it lubricates the rubber.

PCMods.com sells some polish... and if for the locking strip... this might be funny but KY Liquid or a sexual lubracant could work well.. :P LOL i'm serious

12-02-2001, 05:46 PM
damn wish I would have thought to use water as a lub on mine. Was a pain to get in. Dunno about the KY ... guess it would clean up ok ?!?!?!??!

12-02-2001, 09:12 PM
Whoa!! Put the KY down and step away from my window!!!!

12-02-2001, 10:55 PM
LOL!!! WHy step away from the window? :P

12-03-2001, 12:20 AM
Xdigitalx, you worry me!

12-03-2001, 04:29 PM
No seriously SPAM;D why do you have to step away? and KY Liquid worx. Hey if it worx for lub for plesure why not with a window/ ... i put this stuff on the floor u'd slip! ;D

12-03-2001, 07:54 PM
Kick ass! I wish I would have tought of that. This damn thing took me forever to get in. I almost took off my hand a couple of times. I have a spare but I prefer to keep the two of them. KY jelly, hmm. I think my ex might have some of that. Thanks guys thats a big help.

12-03-2001, 11:04 PM
LOL, whats more important? Your sexual plesure or ur computer?
I'd chose the computer, so use that ky!


12-04-2001, 01:44 PM

I see two possible problems with KY:
-Residue after it evaporates. SPAMI'm not sure what KY is based from (oil? SPAMpetrolium? SPAMother?), but I think it would be likely to leave a residue, or not evaporate at all.

-Reaction with strip. SPAMAgain, I'm not sure what KY is based on, but I know that certain oils, or something, can have corrosive effects on some rubbers. SPAMThat's why the recommend not to use like, baby oil with condoms, or something like that.

Anyway, I haven't experimented with case windows and KY to prove either of my possible problems, and maybe someone here has, but I'm just bringing up my thoughts.

12-06-2001, 01:35 PM
Ok XDiGiTaLX here's your chance to stand up and prove your theory. Install a case window with KY (leave out waht you do after your covered in KY SPAM;D) and let us know how things go.

12-06-2001, 04:24 PM
Ur a bad boy. Ur making me look bad :'( U know my dremel lit on fire! And i have no dough for a window, unless u can donate a window:). I know that KY LIQUID (Yes Liquid) is water based! :) and if it evaporates just wipe it off with water!

12-08-2001, 04:00 AM
Ok I am back guys. That whole windows XP thing kicked my ass. I'm back to the trusty old 98 again. GUI was nice but none of my hardware worked. It just SUCKED!

12-08-2001, 09:26 AM
Thats good... Not to be mean but what does this have to do with a window and KY Liquid :)
