The plastic molding in my grill/windshield wiper well/side mirror trim etc. is faded and grey. I've used armor all on it before and it looks ok for a week or so but then goes right back. Do you guys know of any product/tricks that last longer.

BTW before you smartasses suggest it, I tried anti-freeze already.

You didn't use the correct blend.

I was going to ignore this thread, then saw the 3 exclamation points, then knew it was serious.

What's up?

she's been around the block but still looks great. I spent a ton of time this week cleaning inside and out, waxing, leather conditioning, etc. Now that its looking good the molding stands out worse than ever.

Thatís the stuff I was trying to think of.
Notice the people in the commercial applying it are wearing gloves?
When you have to protect your skin from it you know itís the good stuff. :thumb:

There are two things that will work. I had to deal with the same thing all the time when I was in the car business.

1. If you can get to any of it with a buffer, it may buff out, but the buffer has to be run at low speed and you better know what you're doing.


2. You can clean off the parts and either pull them or mask them off and rattle can them.

All the rub on crap is just a temporary fix.

Chemical Guys makes great detailing products. Their exterior dressing is bad ass. I use several of their products and they are all good to great.

Here is the page with the different dressings. I use the new car shine one on my exterior. I put it on last over a month ago and still looks great.
