Plastic treatment

I'm enjoying my new used 07 and want to treat the fenders and bumpers with something to make them look nice and black again. What do y'all recommend? Thanks!UB

I used plastidip on my 07 a couple of months ago and they still look brand new and its been holding up just fine. It took about 1 1/2 cans that I picked up for about $6 each. And if you dont like the way it looks you can just peel it off.

back to black works great. and then i use 303 aerospace protectant on the plastic and softtop. its the stuff they use on RVs to keep them from fading and it works great.

Turtle Wax Ice works great on all the black plastic/fiberglass. It sucks on the paint though.

X2 This stuff made my newish fenders look way better and was easy and quick to apply. Plus it's easy to find because you can get it at Walmart.

Your best off trying to get them as clean as you can before applying it. I would suggest using a scrub brush when washing and maybe a magic eraser pad. Otherwise it will dry with dirt marks.
