So I just recently bought the unibody MacBook from somebody and just recently noticed a few scratches on the bottom of the MacBook, now they are not 100% noticeable but I wanted to remove them so does anyone know how to remove the scratches?

Buy a new bottom case, file down the entire bottom case and re-powder coat, or live with them. Once scratches are there, you can't remove them. Besides they're on the bottom... what's the problem?

Nope- once they're there, that's it.

Well that just seems too easy to me :). Yeah scratches can't be undone...

Lee - brasso will help to remove some surface scratches.

But did the OP do a Google search?!

Yes, I did a google search and didn't come up with much besides some MacBook paint but thats for the Titanium PowerBooks and i'm not sure if IKlear would work but i'm hoping Brasso would if anyone knows where to buy Brasso?

I really don't want to make a new thread

is there a way to remove Whitebook's scratches on the wrist pad?

Easiest way to clean a plastic MacBook's top case is with iKlear and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

Id suspect that Brasso will work on your unibody, but you might want to try it out on an inconspicuous area like the inside of the battery lid (if it's got one). You can buy it at any hardware store, or most grocery stores. Make sure you get the liquid kind.

when I bought it, I went to the hardware store - I think HD or Lowes would have it.
