Plastic Polish

Morning all, what's everyone using to polish plastic windscreens, visors etc. I was recommended to Plexus, but doesn't seem to be available in UK & stupid price from the states.

Looking for personal experience of products please!

Thanx in advance





Furore Formula Car - the only two seater modern Formula Car lookalike. I no longer run Furore Products or Furore Cars Ltd, but would still highly recommend them for Acewell dashes, projector headlights, dominator headlights, indicators, mirrors etc, best prices in the UK! Take a look at http://www.furoreproducts.co.uk/ or find more parts on Ebay, user names furoreltd & furoreproducts, discounts available for LCB users.
Don't forget Stainless Steel Braided brake hoses, made to your exact requirements in any of around 16 colours. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/furoreproducts/m.html?_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1

Halfords sell a kit that fix's Headlamp cover yellowing, and it did a pretty good job on a friends focus

Is that the type of thing you were looking for ?





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

try suppliers of light aircraft parts. They sell aircraft windscreen polish specifically for doing light aircraft plexi glass windscreens

oh and although it says it's not recommended on the bottle, Rain X works a treat, used that on my MB visor and plastic side windows, also helps stop it getting dirty in the first place.

Dunno if you can get them all over here though

Funnily enough it's actually for an aircraft that I want it, was trying to fight shy of the usual suppliers as they do seem to like doubling the price of ordinary stuff the second it gets used on a/c!

Not looking for anything as aggressive as this, just want to keep the acrylic clear & (relatively) scratch free, so polish , noy restoration of badly damaged surface

Thankx for the info tho'

This looks like a good maintenance polish, and not expensive
