  • Then take a piece of 320-grit sandpaper, and wet sand the area of the visor where you have a scratch. 
  • Wet the sandpaper often by dipping it in water, otherwise, it will leave the visor very cloudy and distorted. 
  • Keep sanding until we get the visor as smooth as we can get it with 320-grit sandpaper.
  • Sand it in a circular motion until you are not feeling any scratches by running your thumbnail on the shield, and you can’t visibly see any scratches. 
  • You’ll see a bunch of little itsy-Betsy scratches that are from the 320-grit sandpaper itself.  Which is fine, and we’ll take them out. 
  • This step may take fifteen minutes. At the end of this step, you’ll have a smooth and cloudy visor.

Step 2 (2000-Grit Sandpaper)

  • Now switch over to 2000-grit sandpaper, and we’ll do the same thing one more time. 
  • Sand it in a circular motion until the cloudiness starts to clear up. 
  • When everything looks exactly uniform and the surface of the visor starts to smooth out, then you are done with the sanding process.

Step 3 (Scratch And Swirl Remover)

  • Now take some scratch and swirl remover on a cloth and rub it in a circular motion on the visor to get the luster. You can do this process by hand, but you won’t get that high luster and it will be a time-consuming process.
  • To save some time and labor, use an old buffing wheel and a drill machine. Fix the buffing wheel on the drill, and put some polish directly on the visor. 
  • Turn on the drill machine and start rubbing the polish on the visor with the buffing wheel. 
  • Continue the process for some minutes, then get a paper towel and wipe the excess polish off. 
  • Repeat it two to three times until you get a clear and shiny visor without any scratches on it.


This process is very easy and money-saving. You can remove the scratches from your helmet visor easily at home with this inexpensive stuff. 

You’ll not have to buy a new visor if you have got a scratch on your shield, thus, it will save you money. 

Hope this article will help you to get a clear scratch-free visor at home.
