    simple things for now
    This is the first vehicle I have owned with the plastic on the body (fenderwells and bumpers). All my previous vehicles had body matched paint on the bumpers and such. What do you all use to keep it from fading and such. 2018 TRD OR.

    Thanks for the help

    303 aerospace. It provides uv protection, use inside and outside on plastics.

    I use Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax on all painted and black plastic surfaces. Unlike true waxes, it does not leave a white residue, and leaves the plastic nice and shiny. I have not tried it on the top surface of the rear bumper, though. I even use it on my wife's 2011 Highlander. The black plastic at the bases of the outside mirrors had started to fade, and it brought them back to life.
    After (nearly) every wash, I go over the vehicles quickly with Meguiar's Synthetic X-press spray wax. It keeps the plastic looking good (mud flaps, outside mirrors, base of the windshield, top rails of the bed, etc).

    303. The best. Just buff it to the level you desire. It doesn't evaporate.

    It will if it’s not buffed in really well. Just use a microfiber rag and rub it in really well.
