From a fellow Helecite
here is a neat idea - - -
| How do "projects"
problems were immediately obvious to me when the '94 Helix was delivered
(I bought it sight-unseen and had it trucked home.) The first was that
it had been outside for much of its life, leaving the unpainted plastic
panels a mottled gray instead of a matte black.
Neither issue was critical but both were annoying and had to be corrected (okay - I'm a fussy old man.)
Dull gray "black" plastic
is a common problem with today's autos, so I figured someone had invented
a solution - and a short trip to my friendly nearby auto supply store
proved that was the case. Right there on aisle 1 with a thousand kinds
of polish: Black Plastic Restoration Kit.
The clouded plastic window might also be curable - I had read that someone had developed a headlight repair kit that should take care of this. Same store, different aisle: Permatex 09135 Headlight Lens Restoration Kit. Peachy!
And so it starts - other projects may be viewed from links above.
