What to use on Plastic Body Parts?

What do you use on plastic parts (Bumper and Mirrors) that have oxydation?

Generally what works on the the rest of the body will work on the plastic parts as well.

for trim, i like Mother's Back to Black. But before spendin 6 bucks on a bottle of that, heat up some peanut butter till its melted, and then rub it in with a toothbrush. that'll take off any stains on your trim.

Nah, I wasn't talking about the black trim (don't have any thank god). I was talking about the plastic parts, mirrors, front and rear bumpers. The paint on these parts are different than the paint on metal. So it needs something else to get the oxidation off.

Has anyone had success getting oxydation off these parts with a clay bar?

Have a buffer? That and something like 3M Finish restorer may do the job.
Work on cars at dealerships everyday.

paint usually fades faster in plastic

he is talking about black plastic bumpers and mirrors.

If you can't get it off, they sell paint cans at autozone that is for the plastic flexible bumpers.

Just paint them

I think he is talking about the parts that are body color. They are painted with the same stuff that is on the rest of the car. Urethane paint (base/clear) is flexable and does not require a flex additive. You remove the oxidation the same as the rest of the car.
