Outside Mirror Restoration

We have a 2005 Winnebago Adventure .. the two outside mirror housing is black and appears to be made out of plastic .. they have weathered over the years .. that being said .. might someone know of a professional plastic cleaner that might restore the black plastic housing to a near new appearance .. thank you glenn

How is this different from just spraying it with black paint? Based upon the number of vehicles on the road with chalky black plastic trim, I am not so sure there is a way to restore this stuff. All the oil-type products work well as long as they are wet, but once they dry it goes back to the white/grey color again......

Wipe New, while expensive, really works well for faded black plastic, and lasts a long time. My H3 Hummer has black plastic on the A-pillars, the full length of the roof, and the D-pillars. They were very faded/grey. I used Wipe New nearly a year ago; they still look great!

Plastidip can be used on wheel rims as well as any other part on the vehicle. It does not fade and change color and if you decide at a later date, the stuff can be peeled off very easily and a different color applied. A lot of Jeep owners use it to black out the chrome trim on their vehicles and if it didn't hold up, they would not be using it.

Good old Krylon Fusion paint, designed for plastic, will do the job nicely and inexpensively.

I just got done scrubbing ours with a scotch brite pad. Then applied a coat of protect all. They don't shine like painted, more of a black satin finish. Maybe not perfect but a lot better.
