Ran across a product that really works wonders on improving the look of old boatanchors.

Now I have tried using everything in the past including Zymol, Mothers brand, Turtle Wax, Armor All and just about everything inbetween.

Try out Eagle brand "Nanowax"

Looks really great on the R390A and the 1051 in the shack. Works good on glass dials (Product is even recommended for use on glass) Won't harm plastic too.

Thanks for the tip.
    But in general, you ALWAYS have to be very careful with plastics.  While a product (such as a wax or polish) may not damage plastic itself, you must be VERY careful of how you remove the polish.  You MUST use a very soft cloth.  Using rough cloth, or a dirty cloth can scratch plastic (and occasionally glass) no matter what is used to polish the surface.  It's especially important to be very careful with plastic dials, and meter faces, which may be irreplacable.
    Just a reminder to be cautious.

Whoa, when I seen this title I just had to come see   Thought maybe it was to cut down the resistance for smoother stops on water Smiley  Seriously though, some waxes leave the plastic looking rougher than when you started, I would also be interested in where to pick this stuff up.

Any particular variety of nanowax? I understand from surfing the web that Eagle makes at least two kinds: liquid and spray.
Thx.
