    Fading Riva Pieces. . .

    I remember it metioned in an old thread but I cant find it. . .

    So what is good to use on Rivas' black anodized peices when they start to fade?

    probably a new powdercaot job or paint them.

    my OPAS block offs are a mess, faded, dulled. i'm hesistant to put them back on they so ugly.

    similarly... my Riva sponsons need some TLC... i'd like to know how to clean them up. i'm thinking u can't wet sand plastic and buff it to a shine? what is that surface on the riva sponsons and how can i make them shiny and remove scratches? no polish is working... matter of fact, tried a polish on the back side and it dulled it more!

    i'm about to paint the sponsons too...

    any ideas for 05rxpnoob and I?

    Shibby,
    Arctic Cat makes a plastic polish that will probably work on your sponsons.
    As long as the scratches are not too deep. The stuff works really good.

    I used a scotch-type pad to clean up the blockoffs, helped alot but there still is a slight dull finish to it, I remember when the riva pro b/o's came out way2fast(?) gave some advice how to keep them from fading but I cant find that thread. . .

    Here's the thread on what Richard said..

    Seems like Armoral works?? I would think you would have to keep applying though...

    No prob..
    It wasnt too easy to find because the title had nothing to do with the fading issue..
