    Exterior trim back to black

    Sorry if this has been done to death, but I need to re-black the bumpers and other exterior plastics on the car, what have you guys found to work best for this?

    TIA

    For a cheap alternative you could try ATF, just use like a polish on a cloth, or gentle application of a heat gun. The gun is great for bumper tops and door strips but tricky on the smaller bits. Both work well and lasted me around 8-9 months.
