    The white trim on the seat is getting a little (lot) grubby and I wondered if anyone has any recommendations for a product/process to get it looking like new again. I am just worried that attacking it in the wrong way will damage the surface.

    While we are on the topic of cleaning tips I used to use a product (whose name I have now forgotten) that I really thought was the best ever chrome cleaner. It was sold as a pre-impregnated cloth (yellow) and you would cut off a square and use that to polich your pipes and other brightwork.

    Q1: Does anyone know the name of this product and if it is still available?

    Q2: Does anyone know of a superior product that will make my shiny bits shiny?

    Eagle Products Nevr-Dull is a white wadding that works well. You tear off enough to polish what you want and then clean off with a cloth. It lasts a long time and is easy to use. Don't know if your Wellington is in NZ, but in the USA its in Wallmart. The Harley guys told me about it.

    I'd like to know what cleans up the white on the seat, haven't tried anything too aggressive but what I have used doesn't work.

    Thanks Chet. I am indeed in NZ but I can almost certainly find this stuff on the interwebs.

    I can vouch for Nevr-Dull as well, I've been using it for years.
