    If you clear you need to polish the clear as well. Get some rubbing compound and get down to doin the dirty. You might need to clean them off with some dawn or something before you clear though. The polish will keep the clear from sticking.

    I don't need a dash with inlaid bavarian walnut, but plastics that last would have been nice. That is not the case in my car.

    Bringing this thread back from the dead. What would happen if i did this but instead of polish used gloss black? Would it turn out looking ok?
