The packaging says "The definitive Plastic Window
Polish" Oh yeah? Well actually ,if not THE definitive polish (I struggle to
award 10 out of 10, it's pretty darned close to it ....probably 9.5 out of 10.
It's quite rare that I test a product that's as good as it boasts, especially
when, like RENOVO's, those boasts are plastered all over the bottle).
But, bless me, RENOVO works. Not only does it remove scratches from perspex and plastic rear hood windows, it's easy to do.
Use Plastic Window Cleaner to offset some of the problems normally associated
with this type of window in convertibles. As the hood folds down scratches occur
from microscopic canvas friction marks. With the new cleaner these marks can be
polished out, which can also reduce significantly the cloudiness that is also
common with this type of rear screen.
This is not a miracle cleaner so it does not work on screens
that are so severely scratched that you can't see out of them,
but as the photos show, it can work very well if applied correctly and carefully.
Optional Extras Section......... " See Through ..... Every time the hood is raised or lowered on a convertible, the rear screen becomes slightly more scratched. Eventually, all that can be seen through it is a cloudy blur. If your convertible is suffering from an opaque scratched rear screen, PLASTIC WINDOW POLISH may cure the problem. The plastic polish is easily applied.
Spray hoods are wonderful things, writes Jeff Howlett.
They keep you inside in the dry, yet you can still see out through the clear plastic panels. Until the plastic becomes scratched by the continuous folding up and down of the wood, and ultra-violet rays make the panels go cloudy, This new product from Renovo aims to put that right by removing cloudiness and scratches, using a simple polish-on, polish-off process. I tried the stuff on the corner sections of my wheelhouse windows, which are curved and therefore Perspex and which were very cloudy. I admit I was sceptical. After all, the Perspex is 3/16in (8mm) thick and much tougher than the flexible panels one finds in a hood. However, I've gone over them twice and there is a dramatic improvement - I reckon a third dose will restore them to close to their original clarity. A lot cheaper, and easier than new windows or hood.
