Lynette, You better purchase some extra Honda polish. They are stopping production on that product this year. Per my Honda Rep.

I don't know, but I washed mine yesterday and it doesn't look much different than when I started. I ride mine through the trees and brush so much that it seems to have permanent scratches on it.

I have been spraying Armorall on all my 4 wheelers and utv's for years.
Keeps the pastic parts looking brand new. Protects against rust on the metal parts. Keeps the exhaust pipes and mufflers looking new and no rust. I run my equipment on the beach and nothing I have found works as good as Armorall. I buy Armorall by the case at Sams Club. Last a long time. Well worth the money.

I've used NOVUS scratch removers in the past on plastic windshields with good results. They have 2 different scratch removers, one for small scratches and one for deeper scratches. They worked for me, but it does take some rubbing. Good luck, Mike

I have never washed mine- they look cool dirty-

sometimes it gets an automatic nature wash -rain or crossing a river every now and then.

When I get a wild hair, I wash it then spray everything with any of the tire shine products. Works well and really protects the plastic. The aerosol cans are really easy to apply. Watch the seats though, they get real slick.

We used to use 409 on our fourwheeelers as a kid but they were white, don't know if it would affect colors or not----it did a great job!

Thanks for the tip. Stopped by the dealer today to pick up another can since we just ran out and asked him what the deal is. He was happy to tell me that the manufacturer is going to continue manufacturing it without the Honda name! Woo hoo!

I have used 303 protectant for anything that gets sunlight. You control the shine and it really protects and lasts a long time. You can only get it from places like www.performanceproducts.com and others. That and I always coat my motors with wd40 or 100% silicone spray. I know there are those that say it is not good for hoses- but I have not had a problem and have been doing it for years. It may attract dust- but it just washes right off. Great for you mudders also- makes cleanup so much smoother. I am actually in the process of doing this right now among waxing with Zaino brothers polish both my new ranger and my truck. If you are looking for the best polish and easiest to apply look no further. how do I post pictures?

I washed mine the day after I got it, that was to wash the new off. I won't have time to wash it til it starts to rain again. then nature can take care of it for me.

When you get done washing your Ranger wipe it down then coat it with WD-40 then wipe it down again. It may get a bit dusty next time out riding, but clean-up is A LOT easer. It also makes the plastic look new...until the dust starts to collect. [:D]
