    As the title says, - what is the best substance for keeping black plastic bumpers in good condition and preferably a long lasting treatment ?

    Auto finesse revive will do the job nicely

    Thanks for that. I will read up on that.
    I have used Auto Glym products and generally excellent, but the plastic trim I feel needs something that will last better.

    Haha. No. Will do another coat before winter sets in. I had to do something and didn't fancy the blow lamp trick or spending lots of money or kits. £2.50 that lot cost me so far. Turned out OK

    "Back to black" used to be good.

    Although some guys use WD40 and rub it in well

    I finally bought a small bottle of the Auto finesse revive today to try it.
    Store also highly recommended their products as being of high standard.
    Always worth a try.
    Thanks again Beeero! :)

    Hi Wayners. I haven’t forgot your advice about using liquid shoe polish.
    I will try it on an old car I own.

    I also used some zinnser all coat black on back burner corners and trim because it was covered in paint splashes. The trick is to get really clean as with all waterbased paints but boy did it take well and look good. You can't see its paint and looks like brand new black plastic trim. At £18 - £19 for small tin of black satin that's another option and buy Here... You can see the corner painted black [​IMG]
