    Default Restoring my plastic trim... Wipe New... results

    I am very happy with the results. I park outside and will occasionally forget to put the cover on at night. Well after a lot of recent upgrades, the trim appearance was ruining the rest. So I tried Wipe New ( as seen on TV ) from Walmart, and um, I will let you judge.Click image for larger version.

    That's awesome! I wondered how that would work, as I have a lot of wax powder residue on my black. Please keep us informed as to how long it lasts.

    I've never tried this product so I don't know if it's any good but the reviews on Amazon are either 5 star or 1 star which means to me buyer beware:

    Hi everyone: I like to do things quick and easy. When I use tire foam, I usually spray the black plastic on my ride and also on the automobile black trim. I've been doing that for years now and always had good results. I spray some on a rag for any area I don't want overspray on and just wipe it on........hasn't let me down yet and looks great. ( I even spray the wheel wells on the car to keep them nice and black ) Have a good one to all....regards from the Niagara region of Ontario Canada

    Default Tire foam works

    I have a six year old Silverado with a black fabric tonneau cover on it. Just about the time when our 2011 RTL arrived and displaced the Silverado my on hand tonneau treatment ran out and my source closed up and went out of business. The local replacement truck accessory new guy recommended Maquirs tire shine. I decided to give it a go. The stuff works. It's been six months with a monthly redo due to the fact I park the truck under a oak tree that sheds worse then a long haired cat.

    i guess it will get tried on the RTL next!

    I saw a tip somewhere to try black shoe polish on black plastic that you want to bring back some luster to. The pigment in the shoe polish is supposed to help to restore the color and the waxes protect it from the elements.

    Haven't tried it yet, but plan to.
