I already searched the forum and could find anything so I'm postin my question.

How do you "buff out" scratches in plastics (for example the taillights)? And what do you use?

A rotary buffer will take them right out. If you don't have one try to find someone who does or go to a detail shop...if it's only a light they shouldn't charge much at all. You could always try to use some rubbing compound by hand, that might help out a little.

As far as sandpaper goes you're probably gonna have to buff it after you do that too.

You can use a bench grinder or a buffer. Go to home depot or eastwoodcompany.com and buy plastic polish($5) and a loose section buff ($5-10) The grinder or buffer should run at 1800 RPMS so you don't heat the plastic too much.
