    Cleaning the plastic infills

    The plastic infills around the petrol tank/clocks (held in by plastic rivets etc), are looking shabby/tired and rather grey. What can I use to put a bit of life back into them? I don't want to replace them, as they are in good condition but for their appearance. Thanks.

    I've had very good results from 303 UV Protectant.
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    pledge furniture polish works as well for a fraction of the cost.

    Re: Cleaning the plastic infills

    The Pledge Furiture Polish sounds interesting and maybe compares to what I use as a daily paint and body wash and shine product. Well actually there's two,...Fukken Wax and FW-1. These are spray bomb applied "dry wash" products that you spary on and wipe off with one micro-fibre cloth and then buff to a shine with a second micro-fibre. It leaves no residue and makes no dust to leave behind. Fukken Wax can be found on-line,..FW-1 I purchase at local gas station kiosks that appear each summer. I buy it by the case (12 cans to a box) and get a bit of a price break on having done so. When on tour it comes along in the tour bags.
