Hi all,
I remember years ago (30 odd), using a sandpaper type thing which was called Rouge Paper, very fine and must be ideal for use on plastic.
Maybe it's known by a different name these days ?
I am trying to sourse some in the UK without much luck so far.
Hope someone can help.

Here's hoping

Pete

Never heard of it, but I assume you've had a look in the ladies' nail-care section of Boots to find the foam-core emery sticks used to file fingernails? They come in a range of grits (from very fine to "so stupidly fine you think they're smooth") and have grit on both sides of the stick. Cheap as chips and do a great job cleaning up plastic parts. Best of all, being flexible the plastic dust cleans out easier than with traditional files.
