Mothers Plastic Polish works too. Most auto parts stores will have it or something similar.

I had some Meguairs' plastic cleaner/polish, but it seemed to not do much; the toothpaste worked much better.. Maybe the polish was old?

I've tried many and toothpaste works well for minor abrasions but for some serious work (just like cutting paint in) one needs some cutting action. I found Novus plastic polishing products can do the job and utilize 3, 2, & 1 compounds but it is time consuming.

Old topic but what do you guys think about this? Reproduction or original?
At least the oil pressure gauge and maybe the temp gauge look different.
