It's all fun and games till someone says " watch this " then its hilarious.

Welcome to the forums...Free downloadable manuals in the Schematics/Manual help section on the Technical discussions board...Work from a courser wet or dry sand paper up to a very fine grit(2000) wet or dry paper followed by a plastic polish,or if you have a torch,and can keep the heat moving around pretty quickly it will remove the finer grit sandpaper marks as well as bring the color back out(best if you try this on some old plastics that you don't need,or care about first as if you stay in one area too long it can melt the plastic,deform it,discolor it)...

You can also use prep all and 0000 steel wool just dont buff one spot for a long period of time. It also brings the color back to the plastic. I go back over the plastics with the cheap orange glow wax and it makes them shine.

Not that this will help with any of your scratches, but if you haven't used your household Pledge it sure shines those plastics.

Pledge?? Really?? I never thought of that. I've been using Montana Jack ATV shine. Does the Pledge really work that well?

Yeah, pledge works pretty good.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
