Renewed my plastic

Recommended Posts

While out at Paragon Adventure Park (Hazleton, PA) I met a guy who told me I could freshen my plastic with a hairdryer. I was suspect but when I returned home I broke out my heat gun and went to town.

I was amazed at how this worked, it smoothed out the scratches, eliminated the white discoloration where the fenders bent after a crash and saved me from buying new plastic.

Many of you probably already knew this trick but I wanted to pass it along to those that were clueless.

Sorry for the delayed reply, I was on vacation. Paragon was awesome...$25.00/ rider for the day. Take plenty of water and a camelpack. Once you're out it's a long ride back for water. A GPS wouldn't hurt either unless you hook up with a member who really knows the trails you can get lost.

A heat gun actually works better as the heat is more intense and concentrated. You're melting the plastic at the surface which inturn removes the scratches.
