Default Plastic Guards on SF Forries

G'day lads,

I don't know if there is anyone out there who knows a better way or a better product to use on the plastic guards and bumpers on the SF Forries?

I currently use Armourall, and the look is quite good. It does reinstate the colour back to the plastic, which is close to 10 years old now and cops a fair bit of the North QLD sun.

My only concern is that I probably go through a fair bit of the stuff, esp after doing the interior as well, and was just hoped there may be a better product out there or some other method in maintaining the outer plastic from the UV rays....

Any help as always would be appreciated.

Cheers

Aitcho.

It was recommended to me to use Mother's Back To Black. It works great, and really brings out a darker tone.

Default 3M Bumper and Trim

G'day Lads,

Long time off the forum - busy as.

But I've managed to answer my own question with this one. 3M have a product called Bumper and Trim (in Charcoal Grey - worked for my forrie)

After spending hundreds of dollars on Armourall, which did a good job, but was greasy and prone to fading as well, decided it was probably best just to paint the guards and plastic trim on the doors.

Once I figure out how to upload the pics, I'll show the whole Before - After shots

Cheers
