i am going to try the clear on some others here that are not nice, what do you do for prep? i have had bad luck washing them (dash bezels and such)with soap and hot water, then trying to paint them, always get fish eye, which i am sure is due to the soap... this one i washed it with brake cleaner, and it didnt eat the plastic, but i am hesitant to try that with the clear lens, any advice on which product to use?

I tried using a plastic polish on mine and ruined it. Had to track down another at the junkyard and luckily it was in better condition than mine was to begin with.

I just use glass cleaner, I use it when prepping a car for waterborne paint too.

That looks like it could clean up to perfect with 10 mins work.

Prepping things for paint, use rubbing alcohol. It doesn't react with the plastic and leaves no residue. I wouldn't use brake clean, it would react on some plastics.

Maybe it depends on the brand of kit. I used it in my mine with good results. I have found to do it by hand, and small polishers heat up the plastic and ruin it.

yeah, I did mine when I was super tired and in a rush to get it done. Any bit of friction heat just made it super cloudy and was actually eating into the plastic a bit. The mistakes you make when you think faster is better...

made trip to the scrap yesterday to get rid of some batteries, and a select load of cast,(heads, water pump bodies, engine block, and a screwed crank, plus 2 front rotors) went acrossed the scales, got $72.00 for 12 car batteries, and $8.00 for the sorted cast... the price of scrap is down here right now to $30.00 a ton......

anyhoo, after unloading, we went to get some pieces crossed off our list for the K20 build, picked up following parts
- complete diesel fan shroud for square body
-(2) 4.5 out of 10 sierra 25 badges
-(2) camper special 8400GVW badges 4.5 out of 10
- one diesel throttle cable (along with a TV cable bracket from the same truck)
- lower chrome valance cover, 5.5 out of 10
- one pass. side front lower signal light cover, 4 out of 10, its cracked and siliconed
-one chrome ring for 16" wheel
paid $50.00 for all of it, and also found a nice tailgate chrome insert piece for the crewcab, next time we go back we will pick it up, for $75.00... here are some before pics of badges, also a pic of wheels painted up with blizzaks installed( spent 2 days mounting and dismounting tires by hand to make a set of 8 bolt steelies with the blizzaks) other pics will follow for other parts...
