05 Georgetown buffing nose cap

I just finished buffing the fiberglass body of my 05 Georgetown SE (can you OD on ibuprofen?) but when I got to the nose cap, it's a different material--plastic feeling instead of fiberglass. Naturally, the fiberglass buffing compound did nothing for it. I used a McGuires #67 One Step Compound and a Harbor Freight $20 buffer. Fiberglass looks great!

What do I use on the "plastic" nose cap?

Thanks in advance!

I wonder if this is a Diamond Shield like film over the front. If do you should be able to see or feel the edges as it us not usually applied as a full area coverage so it is cut close to grill trim, headlights, mirrors, etc.
If so mfg usually recommends 303 Protectant as a treatment/ preservative.
303 is good product with UV inhibitors but it's not s miracle cure if the surface is poor.
I have used rubbing compound to "restore" chalky vinyl trim but dont know if would help Diamond Shield like film. I see lots of posts on removing it after it has degraded but no experience there.
