Novus 3 followed by Novus 2

 

Or if that doesn't work, use a headlight polish kit with an electric polisher

I’m good brother how you been? You can try stripping it down and soaking it with mild soap and warm water. If we know what it actually was it might be easier to give solutions.

Does it sit on the surface or is it etched in? I’ve seen stuff that melts the surface :-(

If it is then only thing that can be done to tuner window is buffing out the marks. Like said before the headlight refinishing kit will work. As for the case either leave it or paint it

Yeh if you leave it plugged in! Always have to keep well away from the transformer if you’re testing it out whilst it’s open. Simple safety measure tho...don’t plug it in :-)
