    I have a C7.5 poly plow. The face is a little faded from being out in the weather. Is there any way to make it look better? I have tried an armor-all type product on a spot and that really didnt help. Any thoughts?

    keep the plow covered up! maybe try some ski wax or fluid film. I dont think you will bring the color back unless you do some buffing/sanding to get the faded material off.

    Actually, I did buy a Boss. I bought a newer truck in the spring and figured now is the time to change plows. I am going to sell the poly blade. I thought I might try either lightly buffing it with compound or using plastic polish on it.

    Have you ever heard "Beauty is skin deep but ugly is to the bone". Once poly suffers sun fade it goes all the way thru. Theres nothing wrong with a seasoned plow you dont want to look like a rookie anyways.

    If you want to avoid having your poly fade coat it with Bullfrog sunscreen. Blocks harmfull UVs. It contains the same UV blocking products as they use in the poly coloring.

    Works great on boats too, keeps a red boat red, and the plastic "canvas" black.
