Shave That Plastic... at first that is what I thought the name of the thread was called. I think you should shave it.

If they are dirty, try using a Magic Eraser with Lemon Pledge or Meguires interior detail spray. They both work great.

Maybe check into having them powder coated. Might even be cheaper than a of plastics.

Powder coated plastics! Now thats funny LOL. Sorry you opened the door and i took advantage LOL.

Painted would be better, Maier plastics is another idea. And once they are clean im wondering if a heat gun would work or even a blow torch? I think some of the bro's on here did that and helps the shine come back if im not mistaken. Just an idea...

Frenchie, a blow torch:lol: I would shave them:thumbsup: Or if you want to spend alot, get new plastics, Maier are good, Laker are great, and if you have alot of money, FullBore is best.

Good to know! I got a little trick also for you when you want to sell a car and its lightly scratched. Did this for a friend selling his truck...I use some vegtable oil on the scratches and they disapear. Lemon pledge should work alot better.

Maxima SC1 works great for scratchs. as the can says new quad in a can. It also helps keep the dirt and mudd off. A magic eraser works great fro getting the stuck in dirt that will make it look stained.

Frenchie, the torch/heat gun thing is for getting those white flex marks out of your plastics. Ya know when you bend the plastic real bad and it gets those white stress/flex marks in them? You take a heat gun and work the spots where the marks are and the disappear, just be real careful or you'll melt them especially if you use a torch!

They make a flex powder for powder coating plastics.
