They all suggested polishing with car polish or something similar! So I went to a DIY store and finally bought a "repair set" for acrylic bath tubs. The set contained sand paper ranging from 400 to 1200. ( I am not sure if you have the same classification of sand paper in the US, for us 1200 is really super fine, it's pretty much the smallest grains you can get). Furthermore, the set contained a polishing paste and a polishing towel.
Additionally, I also bought a "sand towel" with 1500 graining which is the finest sanding available.
I also bought a fixture for a round plate and a lamb wool towel to put onto the fixture. The whole thing could then be attached to the drilling machine.
In addition, I also bought PTFE paste (teflon / silicone paste) to lubricate the moveing parts of the keys again after I removed them and put them back.
Apart from that, you need a drilling machine, screwdrivers, a loooot of time and a room where you can store all the removed keys and the rest of the piano pieces.
These aliens work just like watering globes such as aquaglobes, but they can be made from recycled green glass bottles!
They are perfect for smaller container plants such as herbs or flowers, and excellent indoors and out!
Did I mention they are easier to fill than normal garden globes? Yippee!
