Wall Decorations

A few days ago I stumbled across my old snowboard in the basement. Its in pretty good shape and sports a cool Boba Fett graphic. So being a Star Wars nerd was thinking about mounting it to a wall and hanging it as a piece of art.

The question I have is, is there any wax or polish on the market that removes medium to light scratches and binding marks? I was thinking about turtle wax but I don't know if its too abrasive and will ruin the finish. Basically I'm worried about using any type of product in fear it will ruin the finish of the board. I'm curious if anyone has restored a board for intended home art and has experience in this.

I can provide pictures of scratches and the type of marks I'm talking about if that will help.

Topsheet clear is similar to automotive clear, although it's harder. You can try waxing it but it may not remove the scuffs. If not, you'll need to use either rubbing compound or polishing compound (use whichever one is a finer grit), and then wax after.

I've been thinking about doing the same thing to an old 90's board I've got!
