plastic cleaning
« on: March 10, 2016, 02:28:05 PM »
what product works best for cleaning the plastic dials and knobs on consoles ? I know older plastic has a tendency to yellow or get cloudy with certain cleaners .

I use a warm Dawn solution and an old soft toothbrush to clean knobs with.  For dials, don't use anything but water.  Harsh cleaners can take the lettering off, so be careful.

Novus 1, 2, and three can work WONDERS. For clear plastic, I use 1500 grit or 2000 grit sandpaper and wetsand, then buff it out with novus 3 a couple times, will look brand new however it wont kill plastic yellowing.
