Lenovo yoga 2 pro Body scratch

2014-03-27, 5:40 AM

I got some medium size body scratch on my Orange Yoga 2 PRO clearly visible when seen at the top. Can anybody confirm me if the body is made of Plastic or any metal?

Can I use any plastic scratch remover like "Novus 1, 2, 3 Kit Plastic Polish and Scratch Remover" to remove the scratches without impacting the color shine?

Any suggestions please....

I don't know what kind of material the lenovo is made of, but the finish is most likely a paint/coating of some sort.  Scratch removers work by basically being a very fine grit sandpaper.  That would work on things like plastic screens, where you have thick clear acrylic that you want to sand down until you've gotten rid of the scratch.

 

It probably wont work on a colored finish like the orange, unless your scratch is still orange.  In that case, you're basically removing the top thin layer of orange that has the scratch, exposing more orange underneath.  It's very unlikely your scratch is this shallow, or you'd barely be able to notice it.

 

Also - scratch removers will leave a very smooth/polished finish (if they're working correctly).  I think the orange finish is matte/satin, so you'd have a very strange shiny section.

 

Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you'll be able to get that scratch out... at least with scratch remover/polish.

I have a couple of scratches too, one on the top and on the bottom. It was rubbing againt a carabiner I had attatched to the top of my backpack (now removed).

 

I don't think there is really anything that will fix it. I'm Just going to have to be more careful moving foward.
