    2016 X354 Questions with Plastic Hood

    I try to keep my JD X354 in great shape but can't always take the time to polish it. I have a few like light spider scratches from actually washing it and polishing it. Does anyone know what a good polish I could use to get that plastic hood looking nice?

    Thanks

    Just put a good quality wax on it once a year. Other than that just wash it occasionally.
    Using actual polish ALL the time is hard on any shiny finish. Polish is usually used to try and restore a worn or neglected surfaces. However for regular use it to abrasive.

    Polishes and rubbing compounds are normally used to remove the very top layer of the finish. If you caused damage by doing this to often it's permanent.

    You can give this system a shot. Unfortunately you probably need to buy all 3.
    #3 is like a rubbing compound for heavy damage.
    #2 is like a polishing compound to hopefully remove the fine scratches from #3.
    #1 is basically just a mild cleaner to finish the 3 step process and do regular cleanings.

    I have sold hundreds of bottles over the years. It's a quality product for the price. Always recommend it with every plastic motorcycle windshield I ever sold. I use it all the time to clean my glasses and plastic screen cover on my Otter box.

    Another good tip is not using paper products to wipe plastic. They are made from wood and tend to leave fine scratches. Always use a clean micro fiber or soft cotton cloth.
