    If a scotch bite is too coarse,try the pads that look like a scotch bite at the dollar store. Much less abrasive but I have good luck scrubbing stuff up pretty well with em. Iím another vote for a repaint though. Just bought a Ď74 today that has been repainted and new stickers, looks good. Have to look into a clear coat on the cover, thatís a good idea.

    If you want an easy clear coat, go on Ebay and buy a couple cans of 2K clear. It's not terribly expensive and gets you fairly close to an automotive style paint job. Wear a respirator though.

    Unlike what was posted earlier, I do not recommend clearing over vinyl decals.

    The first step I use, gets grime off pretty and starts the "polishing" is spray furniture polish. Pledge or the likes, but I just use the cheap wally world stuff. I use it on my motor after I get home from each trip. Keeps water spots off too.
