Black plastic fender help....

Know there's got to be a thread about this already, but couldn't find it using my iPhone app here.

I washed my '12 JKU Sport earlier today. It had mud on the rear plastic fenders for about a month now. I had to have scrubbed for about 10 minutes on each of them, both with sponge and bug sponge. They look clean when they're wet, but as soon as they dry, I can see the dirt again like they're stained.

Any ideas? I know I read something about how to get rid of the stains and take care of all the black plastic parts.

Thanks

You need to pressure wash it then scrub then pressure wash again. That worked for me at least

I guess I'll have to take it to the do it yourself car wash and pressure it up. I don't own a pressure washer. When I buy a lift and some "wider than fender" tires, I guess I'll have to invest in one. Lol

Do you know what the name of the stuff is at the auto parts place for the black plastic and soft top?

Yeah, I take mine to the car wash. It's only like 5 bucks for 15 minutes here in south Carolina.

Back to black, I think that's what I read about somewhere on here. Thanks!

Back to black is the only thing that worked on my black hardtop.
