Tips to clean up unpainted plastics?

Nick,

I have a Buell with some rough plastic covers that I would like to clean up. Is there any type of rubbing/polishing compounds that would work etter than others on the plastic? Any round about figures on what you would charge? I could swing by one afternoon for you to see it, but for the actual work I would just bring you the parts off the bike.

Oh yeah, and any particular wax to help with keeping the bugs/overspray off?

Do you have any pictures of the parts you're refering to?
And you're mentioning rubbing compounds, does that mean you're trying to remove scratches or just clean them up and make them look better?

If you can run it by the house, I can take a look at it. Probably be easier than pictures.
