    I was wondering what the best way to clean and protect the black fenders (and to a lesser extent the running boards) on a TRD would be...

    Mine are somewhat oxidized (i think that is the proper term) and have a light white/grayish haze to them...they are not real black and nice anymore...

    On top of that, some knucklehead took a key or something and wrote on them which now shows up because it has scratched through the weathered layer......

    Any suggestions? I searched the threads and didn't find anything....

    Thanks in advance....

    +3 I use it too. You may want to buy 2 bottles because the 1st one may get quickly spent 'catching up' the weatheredness:)
