Restoring Plastic Windshields
Saw this on Motorweek today and I remember somebody here asking if anyone knew of something to use.
Being a safe driver requires good visibility, both to the front and to the rear. Now we've got some problem solving products today. First, when was the last time that you looked at your headlights? Maybe you're not seeing quite as well as you used to after dark. That could be because the lens on the headlights has discolored. This happens from the ultra-violet light from the sun, and you can restore the majority of them.
There are a lot of kits on the market but we've chosen one from Permatex which can do what we've done here. You can restore the lens very easily, and very effectively, and very in-expensively - a lot cheaper than buying new headlamps.
All right, now maybe you have a motorcycle or some other vehicle that uses a plastic windshield. Plastic windshields are prone to getting scratched; all kinds of things can scratch them.
The folks at Quix (see Thumbnail) have a product that is designed specifically for restoring these plastic windshields, it works very well. It can bring it back to virtually like new condition, so if you have a scratched plastic windshield, the Quix product is something to look for.
