    Hi All,
    On one side of my motorhome the lower blue panel (see my avatar) has become dull, the other side is fine and shiny, can anyone suggest a product to bring the shine back?

    Thank you
    Mimi

    Try very gently rubbing some T Cut ( on a small inconspicuous area first ) then polish off & wax over (y)

    NO NO NO do NOT useT cut please it may do more damage, instead use Autoglym SRP. This is a lot more suitable, as suggested try it on a small area first, if it does the job remember to wax afterwards, otherwise it will be dull again very quickly.

    I merely suggested this as it can work if you are very gentle & I made that point clear to the OP.

    Of course SRP could be more suitable.
