    Yes I too would be interested in any suggestions.  I'm afraid anything strong enough to polish/remove scratches will only dull and blur the view.  Sort of the same reason you can't polish eye glasses.  But if anyone has suggestions I'm very eager to hear.

    Have you used it on the Trophy screen?  I understand the touring screen is Quantum coated.  Doesn't this remove the coating?

    OK.  Then I'll order in some.  I see I can get 8 oz containers from Amazon for $15 and I have prime so free shipping.  The link you posted seems to indicate 2oz bottles.

    Make sure to clean it side to side instead of up and down and the small scratches don't show up as much.  I think it's almost time to polish mine out as well from road debris scratches.

    Why side to side rather than up and down or circular?
