Plastic polish...

My search has not pulled up the thread that recommended a polish that brings back the shine to the sink and shower. It required elbow grease, but apparently did a great job. Any help recovering the info? (I think the product began with an "N")

It's the same stuff that's used for polishing the aluminum skins...

Novus

The thread that I started because I was amazed at the difference in the bathroom sink was about a product called "Novus". I got mine from ebay. Someone else said that it required elbow grease. I used a polisher pad on an electric drill at slow speed. Took maybe fifteen minutes to go from ugly old dull harvest gold to almost new looking not quite so ugly harvest gold.

Yes, I used Novus, purchased originally from http://www.mossmotors.com for use on the clear plastic MGB windows. They market three grades of the polish from rough (for deeper plastic scratches) to fine.
