try it on the inside of one of the side panels to see but I dont think it will make too much of a difference

T cut is abrasive so watch it. there are lesser abrasives though to T-cut rubbing compound would be better you are taking me back many years when I resprayed motorcycle tanks etc though so there may be something better out there these days

For about seven years I have had a bottle of Tcut metallic. It is finer in the compound than regular Tcut. I wouldn't use anything else tbh.

If you want to be even more gentle then I can strongly recommend a product called "PlastX". It's basically a compound that you use to buff plastic headlights and it's super super fine.

But yeah, so long as you take precautions and test it on a non visible area first you'll be fine. I bought three of my Alienware cases scratched to buggery but the Tcut metallic sorted them right out

Edit. Actually I just remembered something that happened recently !

Basically I had a monitor and I scratched the frame. The panel was perfect but yeah, two marks on the frame. This was like piano black. I used the Tcut metallic and it was too coarse. Basically the scratches were gone but it left rub marks.

I would imagine PlastX would have been much better.
