Hey guys.

I have a Chrome/Red Cobra shield on my sled (see picture) and it has the normal scuffs and small scratches. I am going to be waxing the hood and was wondering what the best way to clean up that shield would be. I am a little leary because I don't want to scratch it up more, or use a product that will fog the plastic.

I tried sending the question to Cobra but they never got back to me. I figured somebody on here has done it before.

^^^That works, I usually use rubbing alchol to clean mine and then use the above product.

I've used that product on the headlights on my BMW. It works, but not too well for the deeper stuff. I sanded my headlights with 2000 grit, then 4000 grit, then used medium-cut polishing compound, then went to fine cut. Finished it up with the mequire's shown above:

Believe me when I say mine were really bad and fogged. With a ton of rock chips. As you can see they came out pretty well. Is the chrome on the inside or outside? If it's on the inside, just do what I said and it will look perfect.

There's also a product called Novus plastic polish- probably the same thing as the Meguiars- that works great. I use the #2 on my helmet face sheild- clears up all the fine scratches and haze. Should work well on windshields and lens's too.
