You need to get rid of the oxydised top layer - the only way is with specialised plastic polish.

My motorcycle windshield needs to be restored. How do I get it clear as new again without having to by a new one?

The best way is to machine polish it with g3 cutting compound, it will be better than new another way is to use a hot air gun but be careful because to much heat will ruin it

Re-birthing a Tail Light Lens.

Faded plastic lenses are dangerous and illegal. To re-juvenate faded or sun bleached lenses, a polish can achieve remarkable results, rather than the expense of a new one. Any cream polish or finishing auto paint cutters will work. Use a cotton rag and work in small circles, you will see it shine up beneath your fingers. DO NOT USE anything with an evaporative solvent such as Brasso or silver polish, as the solvent will etch into the plastic and the rag will stick like superglue to the lens. The lens below is from a 20 year old DR650RS parked in the Australian sun.f88686b.jpg

93 Ford Escort Headlight Housing Replacement Not Bulbs

Its all done from under the hood. You may have to remove the battery and a few other things but you will see how they are mounted when you look down. Usually turn by hand if its the plastic nuts used, but may need a wrench. There is also a polish out now that brightens headlight covers. It works great and saves money

My Paint Is Fading Please Help!!

It Depends how bad the fading is. A good re store polish from mothers or 3m will bring it bk but it wont last. The sun is breaking the pigement and resins so in the end it will need a paint job.

You can order the entire cover, if you'd like. And there are some generic metal colored covers available for them.

Also, we offer custom artwork in the form of a vinyl wrap for the CDJ units.
