Personaly, the Doctor once owned a Datsun 2000 Roadster whose convertible top's clear plastic window had dried out, yellowed and gone virutally opaque.  It was just this side of cracking.  Over a period of several weeks, the surface was cleaned with this M17 then treated with M10, Clear Plastic Polish.  Relatively heavy applications of M10 were worked into the plastic and allowed to soak. To remove the dried material a fresh application was made to soften it before it would wipe off relatively easily.  After this treatment, the window became crystal clear and supple.  A little yellowing, caused by degraded plastic, remained but the window was completely serviceable and rather attractive again.  The M10 had penetrated into the plastic to restore a path for light to follow.  These two are legendary!
