Remove all of the wires, lamps, and any other items attached
to the ramp. Clean all of the items very well and set them aside.
Clean the ramp very well with hot soapy water. Once the ramp
is clean you will need to flame polish it. The best way to do
this is with a butane hand held torch. Use the small one that
fits in your hand not one you would use to solder copper plumbing
(unless you feel lucky.) The idea is to re-flow just the surface
of the plastic to remove any scratches or lines. Before you
try this on a Guns and Roses “G” ramp, practice
with a cheap or broken ramp first. Apply medium heat at a distance
of about 3 or 4 inches. You will notice that the area you are
working on gets cloudy and then very clear right away. This
is what you want to see. I find it best to hold the ramp up
so I can get just the right amount of light. If you start seeing
a portion of the ramp sag or bubbles form, you are getting that
area too hot. Again, don’t stay in one place too long.
This takes patience but can make a nasty ramp look new again
if done correctly.
