Any "wipe on, magically clear again" stuff work for GT side plastic? Replaced mine about nine years ago (not cheap), and they are looking foggy. Car is parked inside garage 99% of the time. Must have scratched surface with poor choice of washing rags.
I don't have an answer for you. I'm not totally sure what plastic you are referring to. If it's the aero stuff - it's painted. Might be time to re do the clear coat. Have you had any time to work on the new tank? Mine is the most trouble free thing on the car right now! LOL
I'm guessing you mean the Fastback quarter windows. There are some polishing compounds used for plastics, but in general, products with petroleum ingredients will eventually destroy the window. Use of some of the car wash soaps can also result in damage in the long term.
I've often wondered if it would be possible to apply window tint of your desired shade, over the outside of the quarter window The mylar tint film is very resistant to scratches and would help to mask the scratches and hairline cracks that eventually develop in the windows.
Quarter "windows", check. Good idea. Yes, I've used the coin-operated wash soapy brush. But I'll deny it from this point forward! I was hoping the stuff you see advertised on late night TV for clearing headlight plastic might work, but didn't want to take any chances.
Foggy usually means the issue is throughout the thickness of the plastic. But in the event it's just on the surface, try 3M's headlight restoration kit that comes with a drill attachment with a soft orange backing and various fine grit sandpapers/buffers and rubbing compound. I would tread lightly and follow the directions sort of backwards, using the polishing pads first and skipping the heavy stuff. I used this kit to polish out scratches and hazing on my '85 trans am tail lights with incredible results. I skipped directly to wet sanding with the finest possible pad since the kit is intended to restore badly weathered headlights (which see more direct abrasive abuse from dust, stones, chemicals, etc.) The trouble may be what to polish with for the longest lasting results. Walmart has the kit for about $20 and you'll get lots of usage from it if needed.
I bought some of that Wipe New to try on our trucks headlights - seems to get good reviews on the net so thought what the hell. Haven't tried it yet as the weather hasn't been so good around me lately (for F*()& sakes it is snowing here today)...
When I get around to doing the headlights, I still have a broken 1/4 window I can try it on. Not sure I would try it on a good set as the plastic is different between the headlights and the 1/4 windows and it may damage them. But I will post back my results.
