The video that you recommended really helped.
I ordered the novus repair kit, and it should be in next week.

I tried the novus solution for about 2 hours, and i coulnt getthe scratches out.
Im going to get some wet dry sandpaper and sand it down a bit, then use the novus solution again.

Sorry if you wasted time and money. That guy seems to be know what he is doing but I guess you don't know until you try it.

I didnt waste any money, i watched some more videos, and alot of ppl tried it after they sanded it down. It workes good for them, i just need to get the deep scratches, and the majority of them are on the front panel of the tank.
The tank isnt in the best condition atm, there are a lot of scratches. I got it for $50 though, so i can't complain.
I really appreciate your help btw.
