Best Back To Black Cleaner?

14 posts in this topic

Hi, just got an old Ka, and the bumpers need bringing back from their current pale grey.

Any suggestions for the best stuff to use? I've tried Turtle Wax 'Black in a Flash', which isn;t bad, but the area above the exhaust has been stubbornly resisting.

Any help appreciated.

carplan or turtle wax irf they are really grey consider respraying them other than that a good clean and a good few coats of back to black spray on and leave dont wipe off though keep building it up or an old trick is to use coconut oil im sure it is but if its really grey ide paint them

Aerospace 303 Protectant, used it on all plastics and rubber to get them really black, whether inside or outside the car. Good for detailing your engine bay too.

WD40 is also not bad at this.

yeah theres plenty of scrap ones with color coded bumpers on them if i was spraying ide use a satin black i think put it this way the hassle of fitting coded bumpers is better than spending a wad on back to black

Baby oil, or smooth peanut butter! Seriously! Not advised in Summer though, as the Bee's tend to chase you!

Peanut butter is a fantastic trim restorer - that wasn't a joke :lol:

Ground nut oil is also excellent, however - it sounds to me like you're wanting to actually remove marks rather than cover them, as a result, I'd say go down the WD40 route.
