Very little
I have greyish plastic trim that shold be white on my hymer roof rail feet and on the side of ladder mountings they are pitted and dirt is ground in
I was going to try silky first, but think they might need replaced or painted
Any advice funsters?

Linseed oil is good for plastic trims, usually works on the black ones anyway.

Full timing since Dec 2017
I was told recently that using a hot air gun will restore this to almost new.

I was told - I haven't tried it.

The only product I've ever had success with is with a high end car detailing product, Gtechniq C4 permanent trim restorer; expensive but very, very effective. Good price from here (y)

Been moho’ing for a time now
I took mine off and spray painted them, looked better for 12 months but soon deteriorated again :(

We had the same problem, removed all of ours, rear ladder (2x2) roof bar ends (4x2) rubbed them down a bit (waste of time) then sprayed them with some white plasticote from B&M, super job, probably need doing again at some point, but they look like new now, put them back and put “type wraps” around the middle
