Odd Question - Removing Scratches from Plastic

i have a tv bezel/frame that is marred with light scratches - was wondering if anyone has any experience in removing them

tried a product called novus - doesnt work
tried meguiars plastic scratch remover - doesnt work

some even suggest the extreme option of taking it to a autobody shop and have them recoat/refinish it - but which autobody shop does this and does it well?

its an odd question, i know but i got this ocd tendency to not ignore these type of things

Plasti-dip it lol

No, but it's probably going to be hard to get the scratches can either remove the scratched layer (which there probably is none), or cover it (paint it)

Use a car buffer on it with cut polish.

It'll either take it out, or your scratches are so deep that you'll end up making it worse
