hi.I have a black corsa b and the plastic rims above the wheels have faded to a gray colour.Was wondering if anybody had any idea's on making them black?.Only
other option is spend £100 on new ones and thay will fade in time.So any idea's would be great.
what products have you tried on makin them black??
back to black is usually quite crapand will come off in the rain
try auto glym bumper care cheap and cheerful and dose a good job lasts longer,
or there poor boys stuff cant mind the name good stuff rather expensive for what it is but last longer than the auto glym,
or belive it or not a mate off mine uses penut butter, up sides off this is that the plastics dose not absorb it so if you got for a future colour code the body shop will have no problems with paint reactin with the bumper car or poor boys products,
if that fails try the good old heat gun method,
basicly get a heat gun and run it back an forth above the arches not for long though and be carefull when near the body work..
hi mate have same problem with my back arches i tried back to black and it worked on the arches what arent to bad but on the ones that had faded no diff whatsoever. I am going to try autoglym bumper stuff and i will let you know how i get on monday.
i have no idea what the stuff my mate used on mine wen he went in his garage the other day but it was gr8 it looked like custard but it brought it all up a treat i no its ome proper stuff they use when u take ur car 4 a valet i will try to find out what it is 4 u all and let u no.
Use a heat gun !!! Yes I know it sounds stupid but it works !!! The grey molecules in the plastic "fade" with the sunlight. being VERY carful with the heat gun ie paint stripper , gently warm up the arch - keep a spray full of cold water next to you and give it a spay if it gets too warm _ YES THEY DO MELT. I then used a liquid back to black and bumper gel on top.
