    Can I ask what you people use on the plastic window to keep it good ?

    as I have a very simple solution to the clouding that i use on my TR7

    works great.

    You first... :D

    Stevie,

    Autoglym SRP (Super Resin Polish). This is my rear screen mid way through the first go.

    I also use AGSRP but i put it on with a damp cloth. Will have to look into getting our rear window done soon as it has seen better days.

    Best stuff I've used is Greygate plastic polish and restorer as it helps keep screen supple.

    I used Greygate in the past as I got it for free.It is intended for rigid Perspex and Acrylics but does work on flexi rear windows,but it's a slow process.Superseded, in my opinion, for effectiveness and speed of use by Meguiars plastic polishes and restorers or even AGSRP.
