    Howto repair a scratch in an acrylic dome

    This is my latest vlog on YouTube. I show you how to remove a scratch from your underwater camera housing dome.


    The first time that I noticed a scratch on my dome I thought i had to replace it and it would cost me a lot of money.


    Watch the video and I explain how to fix it without you having to buy a new dome. Let me know what you think

    Here is the link

    Micro Mesh is a great product,good instructions,good vid.But when you put that first cut across your dome you feel like crying.You just keep going,hoping to hell it comes good.End result a sigh of relief and a crystal clear dome.

    I looked at this product, but the quixx product was easier to get for me and cheaper. I was really happy with the result and it fits in my travel kit

    Agreed the first pass with the sandpaper makes you want to cry and drown your sorrow in a drink. But three hours later the dome port looks brand new.
    Micro mesh is a great product
