PLEXUS is the only way to go. My buddy uses it on his Beach Duke (Twin engine pressurized aircraft) and his T-28 (Korean era military trainer with a HUGE supercharged radial engine). I used it on all the clear vinyl on my 42 Carver - and there's lots of it. Five years later, it was still like new. I use it on my glasses too - plastic lenses.

Use either cloth baby diapers or the yellow clothes you can buy at Walmart.

Spray it on heavy and work in a circular motion until the film turns to fog anf then starts disappearing. Then get a dry clean one and buff it.

You can buy it West, BoatUS, all motorcycle shops, and directly from Plexus.

Called Plexus and spoke with the owner (I think ) about care of sheilds and such. picked up some of the product today at West Marine and coincidently it's half price right now @ $7.99 per 13 oz aerosol can. I will try it out in the AM. Thanks for all the help folks.

Ask for Kevin Schulte at Hardline. He owns the place, is a member of OSO, and can get you a case of it. I use Plexus on a LOT of things, and it works very well.
