Fading around radio
« on: June 10, 2018, 08:42:45 AM »

Anyone else notice theirs fading around the buttons ? This is on 15 CVO Road Glide, tried Meguiars Back to Black on it, which I’ve had good luck with, but not this time. flhman

I've have 3 Chevy Avalanches in my past with all the plastic all over. I used a product from Carworx called Refinish Restorer with great results. However, a little goes a very long way so it would not be cost effective in this case. Some people have said that the product called Wipe New works well also. Might pick up a few of the wipes at your local everything store or auto parts store and try that.

 ;D   Some things never change at the MoCo.  Make the customers pay to fix quality defects, which in effect lets Harley profit from their poor quality.  At least this is a cheap solution, unlike what people were put through with things like compensators, cam chain tensioners, and all the other stuff.

Thanks guys, after washing it this past weekend, I noticed if I scrubbed it, the stuff started to come off, never had this happen before, didn’t come off easy, but with some work I’ll get it. flhman
