Hey guys, what's a good solution for restoring black plastic?
I've heard and seen people restore black plastic with peanut butter. Although I haven't looked into or asked about the method or what kinds of peanut butter work best etc.
I usually just use armor protective wipes but that only lasts a month in exterior plastics at best before I'm wiping it down again.

I have had good luck restoring some black plastic with Mr Clean Magic Erasers. Just make sure you have water with them also.
I've used PB on the black rubber trim under the windows and it works well pulling out all the dirt and grease. I dont know how it would work on hard plastics though
Back on black or some product at Wal-Mart. I honestly don't know the name but it has a "as seen on tv" logo on it. Question about the peanut butter method is do you rinse it off or wipe it off
I think you leave it on, and seek your dog at it lol. I'll check out the back to black. I've used it before, pretty nifty stuff.
You just let the PB sit for a minute then wipe it off
Depending on what you are wanting to restore you could always just paint it. I used rustoleum satin black on my cowl cover over 2 years and it still looks like this
turtle wax makes a great protect for restoring trim. oreilys has it
I think kissrocksforever uses the PB. I used poor boys trim restorer on my grand Cherokees faded plastic it was a good product you can spray it on and leave it or wipe it off.
Idk I might look retarded but I might use it. My faded parts are the trim where the top is and the cowl
I use Turtle wax Ice paste car wax on my mirrors and cowl. They look like new and I only wax it twice a year.
The liquid wax might work too. I can only find the paste at Summit Racing. The lable says it ok to use on plastic.
honestly the only permanent solution. prep it right and it will last forever.
Prep it and paint it... dont be fvcking around putting food on your car. jesus christ.
Duplicolor trim paint - $9 bucks a can. Come on step it up fellas
It even works on items that are not plastic
SEM 39143 trim black would be the correct product to use. Its a really nice looking satin black and you can use it on plastic and even rubber trim.
Got this at walmart and it works great. Night and day difference for the dull trim pieces

i used mother's back to black on my cherokee and it worked okay enough but it was a constant reapply thing. that stuff was really bad by the time i got it though.
i say just paint it. either the trim paint like said or krylon fusion flat black.
Plasti dip maybe?
This is half done with a mr clean magic eraser. I found out about using these when I was trying to clean the black stripe on my 84. Works wonders on pulling crap out of semi flat black parts.
I wasn't quite finished just took a shot to show a friend.
What is preparation process to respraying the faded the trim pieces around the car. This can keep me busy for the summer work I am going to do on it.
We use SEM Trim Black in our body shop...Here is a link, but you can find it cheaper elsewhere.
