    I have a 2009 Toyota Tacoma Access cab 4x4, silver in color with the black overlay on the fender, anyone know a good product to use to clean these? It should be noted, my truck is not a "poser" I use it and it gets dirty, but these fenders take on a ugly look when not cleaned. Thanks, Doc

    WD-40 tends to attract dirty and grime.....I wouldn't try to clean with it.

    No issues attracting dirt and grime. Been doing this for over a year now. I don't have the black fenders like the o.p though just the colored matched ones...

    It's a piece of plastic. Nothing "natural" about it.
