    Hi.

    I hope this is the right place to post. I have done a fair ammount of reading and can't really find a specific place.

    I need to clean and polish the exterior of the Rapido however it says not to use any thing silicone. AGH. Being a bit new to all this is there anything specific I need to use. I would also like to apply a wax but again I can't really find anything specific for ASB plastic.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    There is a polish that is a bit of a trade secret, used by bike shops up and down the land.. Plexus..

    Also recommended, the various polishes available from Mcguires, and there is a stonking polish available from AutoGlym.

    New kid on the block is something seen at a few shows recently but I am blowed if I can remember what it is called !
    Our valeter raves about it all the time.. something like plasprotect or some such

    He did the front of my van in it .. Did not seem any different to the various other stuff apart from the cost being much higher !:BigGrin:

    Look for 'Bodyshop Polish' - non silicone is standard in these products and paint and silicone really don't get on!

    Most of the big names and trade names will have silicone free - you can also check out your local chandlers - but do price up first - some can be quite dear, others a little cheaper.

    is it ASB or as I suspect ABS, is it a new type of plastic?

    well I though ASB might just be a new material I was only tying to educate myself.

    anti social behaviour


    I thought ASB or anti social behaviour was a better way of discribing polishing the van

    oh dear what have I started, it was a simple question to educated me I did not want it to degenerate into a spelling questionnaire, as already pointed out Jim forbids picking people up on spelling or grammar. It makes some people feel uncomfortable and that was not the intention.
