Default waxing lexan bodies

i searched, found nothing.

was looking at my old dusty grimy lexan bodies that were sitting on top of the fridge. they had a layer of cooking dust and oil and other stuff... anyway...

long story short:

i put some "Zwax" (carnuba wax) on the body, and cleaned it up and wiped it off, and then used a dusting cloth, and it got SUPER shiney and smooth, even took out some light scratches... wow! showroom shine!

so... any harm in this?

=)

I used Novus Plastic Polish on my bodies back when I was OCD.

They have 3 different compounds. One for heavy scratches, lighter scratches, and then one that is more of just a cleaner / anti-static.

obsessive compulsive disorder. everyone has a slight tick of this...

google defines it as:

is a fairly common problem where people experience ‘obsessions’, recurring unwanted thoughts which are difficult to stop, and ‘compulsions’, rituals of checking behaviour or repetitive actions which are carried out in an attempt to relieve the thoughts.
