Novis makes 2 polishes for polycarbinate, the coarse will do for stuff in the shade and the fine requires skill to finish.
Some toothpaste is good, some not consistant.
If it is not coated, it can be finished with a flame polish after the fine Novis. Once agin practice first.
If you have not finished plastic it may be cheaper to get a sheet at the plastic supply house, a crosscut skillsaw blade and the specialty drill bit will work well.
Spray with dilute Dawn dishwashing detergent to kill the static electricity when the paper comes off, wash with a flag tipped brush, NEVER use anything with amonia in it and the only wax that seems to work is Protectal - $8 in the camper isle at Walmart.
The uncoated scratches very easy, the coated is close to acrylic. Acrylic will shatter the same as glass but in 1/8 in or thicker polycarbonate is UL listed as burglar resistant, it tears unless it is to old - seems about 10 years.
