    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.
