Getting orgininal shine back on Atv after going threw mud?

8 posts in this topic

Hi, went out and tried a new trail last weekend and boy was it muddy my quads are disgusting I tried soap and water which always works and it helped but that still look terrible does anyone have any home remedies they use to get the shine back I know tire foam works well. I don't want to go out and spend all kinds of money on cleaners this is my first time ever going "mudding" and all must stuff always has to be sparkling clean. Thanks

you could try using a product called plastic renew but I have had mixed reviews with it. works great but you have to re-apply it to keep things looking good.

I have also had good luck with dawn dish soap and fantastik but i usually just keep it simple and hope for the best.

Thanks! I'll try using dawn! I have a few bottles of that armor all protectant spray anyone every tried that? Heard WD-40 works to but don't want to use it on my plastic.

Last week I washed my Brute Force in preparation for an up-coming trip to a hunting camp and of course one can't go with it looking like dump. The black plastic portion looked faded and I wanted to refresh it. I decided to try using Armor-all vinyl cleaner and was surprised at the outcome. It looked like new again. Might be worth a try.

try some paint thinner it might sound harsh but it cleans and puts a shine on it also.

of coarse try it on a corner first just to see it melts

I think I'd rather it be dirty than apply solvents to it.  

It is a four-wheeler, not a corvette.  They are made to be dirty 

I might try armor all or something but i'd stick with something made for automotive purposes.
