Reviving plastics

Instead of painting with SEM or Duplicolor. I decided to take an old school method of using a heat gun to bring back the luster of our plastics. Turning out good on my test piece.

Another shot of some plastic revive. I did paint one with duplicolor after using the heat gun to remove some scratches, just to see how it turned out.

Here is the heat gun procedure that I did:
Video of using the heat gun:


The results are pretty damn close. So choose which method you want to use.

Getting ready to mount my speakers in the doors. So, I decided to do a few other things while I am in there.

1. Clean felt on door panel and felt on window tracks.
2. Plastic revive on door panel with heat gun.
2. Install new window motors. Might as well while I am in there.
3. Install new door check stoppers. NO MORE SHIN PAIN!

I'll post some pics later.

I use 303. But protection doesnt bring back a true refreshed surface. Cleaning it and refinishing it does. Then I can use more 303. 10 year old material has a few blemishes

the only fading im experiencing is with the exterior blk parts. but its not serious or anything and armoral cant bring the shine back till the next car wash. I kno the judgements on amoral but I think its all in their past bc ive been using it since I got my license in the 90s and never had issues lol. one day I might switch over to 303 if theres a sale or something lol
