well i have found something that worked awesome for me on my plastic it was real oxidized hazzy looking from being washed so much im not sure but i got this stuff its made by 3m its called platic polish restores optical clarity part #051131 can be used on any color plastic is says safely mine is a red 400ex i used a 3M plastic cleaner first and then buffed that and then the plastic polish after that 3 times on the polish put it on like wax rubbing in circular motion let dry to a haz and then buff with a viva paper towel i must say i was amazed this crap really worked awesome and it was only $6 bucks for the cleaner and $6 bucks for the polish so a total of 12 dollers and some tax i got it at a local auto parts store but this store mostly sells auto body stuff like paint so i would imagine if a place carrys auto paint they would have its well worth the money i have to go get some more for future purposes lol

Lars,

Did the 3m stuff seem to take out minor scratches? If so, seems to me, one could wet sand some of the deeper scratches and then use the 3m cleaner/polisher to buff everything out. Hmmm....

naw it didnt take to many of the deep scratches out but then again i only spent maybe 45 mins for the whole wheelr and it shines now wow but the cleaner does say on the back that it will take minor scratches out i just didnt want to take a chance on sanding it and duling it mine was pretty scratched up acually just getting that original deep red back in mine and givin it some shine was a big improvement but i notice its kinda tricky stuff u have to be patient at first it didnt seem like it was working but the more i played with it i started to figure it out and i thought to myself wow this stuff does work my plastic doesnt look brand new but what a difference just getting the oxidation off it and only cost me 12 bucks verses new platic big cash$$$$$$$$ well i dont know what kind of luck u guys will have but i like it good luck just always see people trying to get some shine back into there plastic and i thought i would share what worked for me pretty good
