Repair of frosted cabinet "glass" panels

I have a 2004 CCD 28.

After a while my frosted sliding "glass" cabinet panels became scratched, marred and ugly.

The solution to making them look like new is to go after them with an orbital hand sander using 40 grit (very course) sandpaper.

Don't be afraid, it works fabiously and they end up looking better than new.

I'd like to give an update on this thread. I've concluded that sandblasting may be a better alternative than hnad sanding these panels. Has anybody tried to rework the panels?

We have made some beautful frosted panels by using safety glass as our sandblast cabinet ports! The only problem I would see with that is that you would need to do it very evenly.

There is also some goop you can get at craft stores that will etch glass. You might try it, since it is easilly controllable and you can use tape or stencils to make lines or designs.

Susan, thanks much for the input. I will research your thoughts. I don't think I willl mind the uneveness of sandblasting the panels. It might give an unusual effect, anything is better than whai I have now. Thanks again. Gerry
