Re: making plastic look new

i have heard of some clear protective covering that will keep the shine and plastic condition.... might have to find something else for cleaning first.... the only thing is i am not quite sure where i saw the stuff advertised.... might be in a dirtwheels mag or some webpage.... another thing i remember it was really expensive.. like 1 thou just to get it done.... i heard it was worth it...but like i have that kind of money.... now if sponsors pay for it.... thats another story hehe

Re: making plastic look new

Mop 'n' Glo. Don't laugh, it works! It won't make the plastic look brand new, but it will give it new life. I use it on my bike and my sled.

Nice thing is it's cheap and easy. Kinda like I like my women.....ooops, did I say that out loud?

Heh, heh, have a good weekend all, no broken bones or bikes.......

I use a standard green pad, like you'd use in the kitchen and some spray cleaner, Windex etc..., it cleans all the dirt out of the scratches. Doesn't leave it shiny, just really clean.

I used steel wool and bleach and man that worked pretty good. Since my fenders are white the bleach worked good. Know I just need to fine a good sealer.

Re: making plastic look new

The other thing I found for plastic is a 3m plastic polish. I also bought some clean coat stuff, But I sparyed it on a spot after I polished it and the stuff won't stick one properly, Also it says to ruff on the plastic with 200 girt sandpaper. Will this clear coat be better and more shinny than that plastic polish?

Re: making plastic look new

Something I'd read elsewhere; for those white streaks you get after bending plastic, heat the underside and the color will come back.

Where do you buy the plastic polish?
