What to use on black plastic body panels?
I could use some ideas here. I have a 2005 Yukon Xl. The back panels between the side glass and back window are starting to look a little faded. There is also "blueing" in some of the ridges. I am assuming that this is from a product that the last owner used on it. I prefer not to use a tire product as I hate when they streak down the paint. Being that the panels are a little textured I am afraid to put wax on them. Any Suggestions on a product to use on them? Here are some pics, as you can see it looks "whitish" in the grooves on the pics, the color is actually a blueish white. Thanks for the help!

I just started using this product
So far I am very happy with it, use it sparingly and a little bit goes a long way. I also bring back the shine to dull looking plastics.2011 Silverado 1500 Z71 4x4 Crew Cab

Armor all has a new dust repelling wax that I started using at the beginning of the summer. It is not a carnauba based wax and it doesn't even feel like traditional wax once applied. It is magical on plastic parts and makes them look new again and the clean lasts for a long time.
It is a bit spendy, but really worth it. I have only had to wash my truck 2 to 3 times this summer. It just doesn't get dirty nearly as fast with this stuff on it."It went together didn't it? Well then there has to be a way to take it apart!" - Me.

Sweet! Thanks! I will give it a try. It is not all that spendy considering what I used to pay for Meguiar's Medallion.

Hey @moogvo, I wanted to let you know that Autozone has a $10 rebate on that stuff right now! So I ended up paying $5.99 for it in the end. It worked great! the panels look brand new. I wish that I would have known about this stuff sooner. Here is a pic, it is hard to tell but the whitish spots are gone and it is solid black. Thanks again.

Glad you like it! It LASTS and LASTS! It's great on interior parts too! I also did my glass with it... you have to be careful with that to avoid streaks. Don't let it set too long. Once it dries it is a booger to get off!

Unfortunately, there is a limit of one rebate per household. I forgot to mention that I had a $20 reward at Autozone also, so I payed $7 out the door for the wax and a bottle of leather cleaner. Then I get the rebate so I made $3. I did the entire truck in it. The black on the rear bumper, on the mirrors, and around all the windows look brand new. I will try the glass also. I drive a dirt road alot and will be interested to see if the back window is covered in dust as usual. I have to say that I am a little disapointed about one thing. The fact that you knew about this product for an entire summer and did not share with us.
