Re: Wind Deflectors and petrol

I would start with some plastic scratch polish paste, if that does not remove the craze on the surface ... likely your going to be Shi* outa luck

Re: Wind Deflectors and petrol

You may try cleaning the surface with denatured alcohol and then polish with PLEXUS.

Re: Wind Deflectors and petrol

I had a stained, cloudy screen. I used methylated spirits and that cleaned it up a treat. That was about three months ago and I have not had the cloudyness return

Re: Wind Deflectors and petrol

Translation according to Wikipedia:

Denatured alcohol is used as a solvent and as fuel for spirit burners and camping stoves. It is also known as methylated spirits

Re: Wind Deflectors and petrol

See if you can find a product called Flitz. It's a polish. If you can't find that or an equivalent, try some toothpast on a small corner.
