The Motobrick Workshop / Re: Rejuvenate plastics?
« Last post by Martin on Today at 03:38:01 AM »
When I first encountered Amor All in 1973 I proceeded to use it on my car dash and door trims. I was suitably impressed enough to try it on my bike seat. One ride showed me the error of my ways, slid all over the place. I then had to scrub the seat with soapy water and a nail brush. I've been very careful since with what I use to clean bike seats. Even though they're not leather I've been using an Oakwood leather restoration kit overkill but I received one year as a present. Cleans my grey seat well and is non slippery.
Regards Martin.

All I can think about now is all the people sliding off the freshly oiled seats...
I hear that!
I tried a lot of conditioners on seats in the past. About the only thing which didn't leave the seat slick was stuff made for vinyl tops on cars. Tough to find these days, but some sort of wax would probably be good.

Put on the bags and strapped the sleeping bag and tent to the back. I'm headed to this rally on Friday.

Less than 50 miles from the house, should be fun.

Ahhh, thanks! This is what I was looking for. Also the old tire is from 2013 so it's a little old but I'm guessing at least part of the air leak is due to the width of the tire not being right for the width of the wheel.

I use Meguiars PlastX and a 6" bench grinder fitted with a 6'' loose cotton buffing wheel that I only used on plastic. I have a separate buff for metal. The buff speeds up the process but requires a gentle approach with light pressure and the object needs to be kept moving. A slower safer method is to do it by hand. I have been told not to use silicone spray products on acrylic as it can cause fatigue cracks in the plastic.

Sometimes clear plastic can be de yellowed with cut and polish,  wouldn't hurt to try it. I've done it on headlights for roadworthies, but I go El cheapo now with nifty or something similar.

The Motobrick Workshop / RT deflector yellowed
« Last post by schrocketeer on May 22, 2019, 12:03:28 PM »
The deflector strip on my '85 RT has yellowed quite a bit more than the rest of the windshield. Is there any treatment to de-yellow it?
I've seen new deflector strips for $75, or the aftermarket total windshield replacements for $300'ish, but those both seem expensive.
Any suggestions?
