How do I clean my windshield?

Clean your windshield with plenty of soapy water (mild dishwashing liquid is best) and a soft cotton cloth. Use your bare hands to feel and dislodge bugs, or cover with a wet, soapy towel and let it soak. Don’t use paper towels or scrape the surface of the shield with anything.

Can I use a water repellent on my windshield?

Never use any glass cleaning products, petroleum based chemicals, or cleaning agents with ammonia, bleach or any other harsh chemicals. This includes (but not limited to) RainX, brake fluid, acetone, paint thinner, benzene and gasoline. “If it hurts your nose, it will hurt the plastic.” The use of glass cleansing agents will cause severe damage to your windshield, and will void your warranty.

How do I repair scratches on my windshield?

Memphis Shades recommends the use of Novus #2 to remove scratches. The deeper the scratches, the greater the pressure required to remove them. If the surface is dirty, clean with plenty of soapy water first (mild dishwashing liquid is best). Shake well. Test in an inconspicuous area. Apply NOVUS No. 2 liberally. Using a clean, soft cloth, polish with a firm back-and-forth motion at right angles to the scratches. Keep the cloth saturated with polish at all times. When the worst scratches have been polished out, reapply Novus #2 uniformly in a circular motion to the entire surface using short, circular strokes and light pressure. Allow to dry to a light haze. Using a clean portion of the cloth, buff the surface to a slippery glaze using firm, short strokes. This procedure is imperative in achieving the best results. For heavy scratches, multiple applications of Novus #2 may be required.

Can I paint my Memphis Shades Fairing?

Memphis Shades fairings come with a weather proof class A finish and do not need to be painted. However, they are made of Lucite cast acrylic and ABS plastic and can easily be painted using most automotive or motorcycle paint, with little preparation. (Most people have only the outer surface painted, but inner surfaces, including the ABS parts, can be painted.) Some paints contain organic solvents that can be harmful to Lucite and ABS. Paint makers have extensive application information and can make recommendations on specific formulations. Your local painter would routinely know this, and all things considered, having him paint it is preferable to doing it yourself.
