Liquid gold wood polish. Iput that on the old ford truck a had. the red paint was faded real bad. that prought the shine right back. looked good till the rain washed it off then I had to re applyy it. O yea it really atracts the dust tho.

I've heard of heating the plastic with a good hair dryer(didn't work for me) to get any white bend marks out.

I use the Turtle Wax synthetic spray wax on occaision, but I think its just a waste...

I've also used Tire Foam...spray on...let sit @ 5 minutes and wipe off.

Mothers or Maguires Aluminum (mag) wheel polish does a great job. I need to remember which I used, but they are very similar. Its a small can, not the liquid. I brought a sun faded 350X headlight cover back to a real nice color and luster. Its pretty quick too. Or wet sand, and use a good rouge, then a plastic polish, but unless you are doing a hard to find parts resto thats extreme.

This is for all of yall that have Red Grizzlys that have faded to pink...
Mothers Back to Black plastic polish
Just put it on like you would a coat of wax on your truck and it'll bring your grizzly back from the not so manly pink to the shiny red its supposed to be!

I use Collinite # 845 wax on smooth plastic . Tire Wet silicone spray on textured plastic & bumpers and Pledge furniture polish on my polycarbonate & soft windshields . The Pledge on the windshields fills those tiny scratches that make an older w-shield hard to see through in the sunshine .

tried the "mothers back to black" on the grizz and ozark today
it did ok but i think the grizz is too new to see a difference and the ozark was too light of a color (yellow) but i think it brightened it up a little but it still has some tough spots. i even tried turtle cleaner wax and a buffer even a little comet on the tough spots
