    My black trim has got white patches all over it, any tips on removing? I've tried back to black and others but none seem to work. 20180406_084151.jpg

    It's polish I guess and I've never found anything which will permanently remove it but a bumper treatment will cover it for a couple of months.

    A pencil eraser, commonly known as a rubber, works well (y)

    @Norfolk Nomad I've just had a look and I still have half a bottle of the Forever Black and as the Ducato has a new home and we are now black trim-less, if you want to give it a go then PM me with your address details and I'll post it to FOC.

    @CCC I have a Fiat ducato PVC. Do you think from your experience that there would be enough to do all of it from a complete kit before I order 1 off eBay?
    Thats wraparound back bumper and side skirts.
    Thx

    Panel wipe will clean it.
    Don’t go made with it and test a small area first.

    Have you tried the autoglym bumper and trim gel. Lasts well.

    Linseed oil works very well as it reativates the plastic.

    I've just used boiled linseed oil on my old T4 and it has brought the black shine back like new. The proof of the pud is, how long will this last ? Will keep you updated.

    How do folks find these remedies and what the hell were they thinking at the time?

    Bit like the first person that said "I'm going to eat the next thing that comes out of that chicken"

    What lovely folk we have here,talking of peanut butter I pinched some of Andrea’s last night for my new battery operated rodent humane killer,will take a look when it gets light.
    Don’t like killing anything but we are in the country and they have done lots of damage here.Sorry to go off topic.
