WJ plastic refreshing

Does anyone have any products to recommend. My plastic pieces are starting to fade to light gray. I had an old bottle of Mothers Back-To-Black but the first day it rained it ran down the bumpers and sides and looks like streaks. Any suggestions?

Re: WJ plastic refreshing

you referring to the cladding? if so, I thought the trick was to use a heat gun.

Re: WJ plastic refreshing

Two products I like to use are the Black WOW Black WOW and the Chemical Guys Fade 2 Black. Both help restore a deeper finish that looks more like new.

Re: WJ plastic refreshing

I had great success on my last car with Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel...

Trick was; heat the trim up with a heat gun or hair dryer, rub in the gel well, let it sit for 5 mins then remove excess. Repeat process once more if required and then just re-apply the gel when required - usually 3 or 4 weeks...

Smooth peanut butter will do a decent job on it too, maybe remove the label from the jar to avoid any weird looks from neighbours though!
