Center Console Windshield Polishing with Marine 31 Clear Vinyl Restorer & Protectant
 
The acrylic poly-carbonate windshield on Bob's recently purchased Boston Whaler was full of shallow swirl marks caused by improper cleaning; the culprit is probably a cheap glass cleaner and tatty shop towels. Obviously the previous owner hadn't seen our segments on Ship Shape TV...:fishing1:

Anyway, when Andre detailed the boat last weekend he gave the windshield some much needed TLC. His products of choice included Marine 31 Plastic Clear and Clear Vinyl Restorer & Protectant. This duo is strong enough to tackle yellowing on clear vinyl windows, cloudy eisenglas and dull, swirled-out poly-carbonate windshields.

As you can see it was in dire need of a good polishing.

Marine 31 to the rescue!

He started off by cleaning it with Marine 31 Plastic Clear. This foaming cleaner removes dirt and grime while depositing an anti-static coating that keeps the material cleaner in between washes.

Marine 31 Clear Vinyl Restorer & Protectant was then applied using a Porter Cable 7424xp equipped with a white foam polishing pad. You don't want to use anything more aggressive than a POLISHING foam pad because you can mar the surface.

After a few passes clarity was restored! Now Bob will be able to see clearly. :)

Marine 31 Clear Vinyl Restorer & Protectant also contains a protectant that shields against UV rays and environmental contaminants. If Bob regularly cleans the windshield with Marine 31 Plastic Clear (which he will ;) ), Andre will never have to polish it again.
