Yep Pledge is a good stuff, especially for the windshield, hides alot of the little scratches up good.

Yes and lemony fresh too. The stuff works wonders on sleds. Safe for all plastics and fiberglass.

Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.

Devil's advocate. Hell conscientious and informed and downright argumentative dissenter.

Its no joke. I haven't used it to much on the hood (I use a TurtleWax spray) but use pledge to clean the windshield and headlight with very good results

Guys, keep in mind that snowmobile hoods are not made of metal so they will never rust. With that in mind, you do NOT need to use the best protective wax or polymer. A a nice, easy to work with product that will leave a great shine and will not leave dusty residue or excess product in the cracks or on the seems of stickers is the best solution for hoods. I recommend either a nice 100% polish or a glaze. This will get the ULTIMATE shine and will save you some time in applying and removal of the product.
