Black textured plastic molding

You know the black textured plastic molding around the wheel area on the 2015 Limited? I've got some minor stains on there that mostly came off, but they're still there. Any recommendations for a product to restore the black?

M39 from Meguiers, and then some UV protectant:

For that UV protectant, 303 Aerospace is great stuff

Re: Black textured plastic molding

Figured I would revive this old thread with my opinion. My personal experience with black texture is a little more involved but will last a LONG time. I have had amazing results with cleaning with Dawn (or similar grease cutting dish soap), fully drying, spraying with adhesion promoter, then spraying 2-3 coats of Eastwood Plastic Resurfacer, they'll turn out better than new and look beautiful for a long time.

Re: Black textured plastic molding

Although it may not be recommended, I have found Rain-X works really well. I first used it to get wax off.

Re: Black textured plastic molding

Interesting...I wonder why it wouldn't be recommended, just hard to get it to not streak or does it degrade the compound of the plastic?

Re: Black textured plastic molding

you can also use an elementary school red rubber eraser to rub off wax residue as well.

They also make eraser wheels that go on angle grinders/polishers that are designed for this. They're also super helpful for taking off old decals and stuff.
