  • Plastic fender restorations.

    Thought I’d just share this.
    I watched a YouTube video on plastic restoration.
    This is from my atc70.
    Fairly solid fender, although had been painted by someone previously. I removed the paint with a paint stripper, then started with 320 grit to remove small scratches etc.
    Then 400/600/800 and finally 1200.
    Through each procedure I kept it wet with soapy water.
    The last step was cut & polish.
    Although I couldn’t do much about the deep scratches, it came up not too bad in under 1 hr.
    Anyway, just thought I’d share with you

    Good job, I'm really digging the restoration rather than replacement angle these days.

      Yeah I agree. I ended up polishing them with a lambs wool cover, machine gave better results on high speed.4AA1BDF3-7DD3-463B-9157-FAF927EF3975.jpg
