PSP Screen and a new faceplate
I've been looking into face plates but now I have a good reason to get one. In order to get to 1.5 me and my brother switched PSP and I downgraded his to 1.5 and he is using my flawless 2.71. Unfortunately mine had a hori on it and his didn't so now the PSP I use has a small scratch on it.
Is the scratch on the actual screen or do the original faceplates also have covers over the screens like the XCM does? I've searched for this but all I find is reviews or questions about which faceplate to buy. My biggest concern is if I buy a new faceplate and take the old one off will the scratch still be there? I've tried feeling for a border between the faceplate and screen but it feels solid as it was a cover and would be replaced with a new faceplate.
I personally am probably going with Asterix just because of the XCM ones wearing out over time in regards to the button but that metallic copper looks slick.

EDIT: I found a site that claims a new faceplate will fix scratches because the original also has a cover over the screen but it was a place I've never heard of. If someone could confirm this I'd appreciate it. Took quite some digging to find that little snippit of information.
I'm thinking about trying the blue smd mod - looks great.
