    I washed my MH this afternoon and I have noticed that the plastic pod on the front where the overcab bed is , has gone really dull as I washed it and it is now dry the top bit that gets all the sun and the ultraviolet is dull. Does any one out there know of a good wax polish for plastic so I can get it shiny again, I can T Cut the vehicle body but not sure about the plastic bit HELP any suggestions:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Hi wasp
    I used t-cut on all of our m/h and then used a turtle wax polish straight away, this was
    about 4 months ago and all seems to be ok.
    Good luck with your polishing:thumb::thumb:

    Hi Wasp.

    There is a polish made for fiber glass and plastics but I can't think of the name of it.
    I had an Autosleeper Talisman for a number of years and used to get it from a yacht chandlers this was recommended by Autosleepers. I think it began with an F, and it is a foreign sounding name. If I can find it I will post again.

    Hope you can find it:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Farecla G3 is excellent, but it is a cutting compound similar to T-Cut. Once used it should be followed by a good wax polish. Farecla also make a wax polish. Go to E-Bay and search for Farecla.:thumb:

    you can buy a product called Big White in most yacht chandlers quite dear from memory but last forever it has a cutting compound in it along with the wax polish most of the professional boat polishers use it last time I bought it was about £20 big round tin with a white shark on it - good stuff specific for fibreglass, be careful with t cut bit harsh:thumb:
