Team,


Just wanted to share what I did today to restore my window trim. When I took delivery of the vehicle someone overused cheap car wax. I hated to see it and I did something about it. JiF peanut butter did the trick for me. Just wanted to share the results hope it helps someone.

or you can just buy Meguiars ultimate black plastic restorer, it works really good I used it for the door
panel and the windshield wipers etc worked good,

I'm trying to understand the thought process behind this.

"Hmm, my window trim isn't black anymore..... I know! Peanut butter!"

Yes, I know. It just seems like the auto parts store would come to mind first.

I know MOISTCABBAGE, but i was hesitant on wiping the trim with auto parts store stuff. I first cleaned it with dawn dish soap to remove as much of the car wax as possibly and then treated it with peanut butter for the oils it has. Hey it worked surely beats replacing them for for 216 for each door and not to mention the labor on that.

$216? Wow. The garnishes for my Seville are ~$600 each, part only.
