I had a scratch in my Clearview shield a couple of years ago. I was unsuccessful in buffing it out by hand until I tried using a buffing pad on my cordless drill. You want to keep the speed in the neighborhood of 1200-1500 rpms. For cutting compound I started using Novus 2 and switched to Novus 3, followed by a good cleaning with the Novus cleaner. The buffing pad has to actually generate some heat before you start to see results. You must keep the pad moving or you will "burn" the plastic.
