Just in case you haven't tried it, you can really clean up the back of iPods with scuffs on their chrome backs.

Brasso® metal polish is around $3 a can, much cheaper than those specialized iPod cleaners.

Here's a before/after of a fairly scuffed up iPod. I only did a minimum of rubbing and buffing.

It won't eliminate them completely - you're still going to have a duller than usual back. But it does brighten the appearance. It also works on the front plastic, without marring it.

Looks good, thanks for the tip. How do you get it so scratched anyway?

Brasso is for brass. We have, or at least had Silvo for silver metals.

The wood on the after brasso picture is different than the other picture, so i don't believe brasso and you just photoshopped the second a little :p

its the same ipod. Look closley at the deeper scratches they are in the same place. Just in case you may have doubts. If you took a little more time on it with the brasso it would have came out a little better

you can also use the green part of a sponge..brushing in one direction.
