Restore Plastic Shine
 
The fender flares on my wife's Jeep are fading bad from the sun. They were black but now they like an ashy grey. I have the driver side taped off right to plasti dip them but before I did that I was wondering if any of y'all knew of any good products to use to help restore the finish. Thanks in advance for the help!

Meguire's ultimate black.
My wife's jeep does the same thing. A couple of applications and then you redo it after you wash. Gas spill will wipe it out so be careful. But works for me

When I had my jeep TJ I taped off the flares and bought some of the Rustoleum truck bed coating and sprayed them. It leaves a matte, rough finish but I liked it simply because it looked a little more rugged and never looked like I doused it in armor all or the like. It was very popular among jeep owners on wranglerforum.com so I tried it. I really liked the outcome so I painted my headlight bezels, front off road bumper, my door handles and windshield wiper arms with it. It was easy to paint using this stuff and if it got dirty you just used a scrub brush and it came right off. Easy to touch up too. All I did to prepare the flares was use a paint preparation wipe made by duplicolor I think and wiped them all down and then painted them. I was never a fan of really shiny stuff armor all wise so this was great. Never had to armor all anything but the tires after that.

Forgot, but a lot of guys on wranglerforum.com would just simply get a couple cans of the trim and bumper paint and reprint the flares altogether. Just a thought. Either way it was awesome not to have to touch the flares or the faded door handles with protectant after that.

Funny how often this comes up....As a Jeep owner for 20 years, the hands down solution is a product called "Forever Black," a dye....won't wash off like all the "protectant" spray on junk, and won't scratch off like paint when you hit the trail. Quadratec seems to have a good deal on it.
