Any way of repairing scratches on Laptop underside

  CLONNEN 18:04 05 Oct 2008

My laptop has recently gotten some rather deep scratches on the underside. It is a silver laptop but the underside is mostly black.

Are there any cleaning products that would help me fix these scratches?

Also is there anything I can fix to the underside of the laptop to stop new scratches occurring? Something that won't interfere with the laptop air vents.

You will not be able to remove scratches, You may be able to fit fablon cut to match the laptop but it is a mess to remove after. You may have to just put up with it. Who looks at bottom anyway

Earlier this year I saw a second hand shop in Bangkok clearing scratches from the back of i Phones and I was impressed. This was the old i Phone not the present plastic one. He told me that this was something sold by Apple for cleaning scratches off so perhaps this might point you in a likely direction. It certainly worked very well.

There are all sorts of self adhesive discs about in £1 shops.
I have a pack of them. They are meant as non-skid devices and are black, about 3mm thick.

If you normally lay the laptop on a table and dont mind having 4 studs underneath, these would save further scratches and actually improve the ventilation.
