Recommended Posts

The rubber parts on my bumpers are still in pretty good shape (not cracked) but faded as you would expect. any suggestions on good rubber refresh products or methods? Thanks for any help.

I've had good results with https://www.amazon.com/TriNova-Plastic-Trim-Restorer-Motorcycles/dp/B01AAZ1OAE/ref=sr_1_12?crid=U5ZAYVORXUE7&keywords=black+trim+restorer&qid=1656873126&sprefix=black+trim+restore%2Caps%2C134&sr=8-12


It lasts a couple months in the California sun on our Honda CRV trim, but eventually it does "dry up" again. If you are garaging the car it will probably last a while.

Mother’s “Back to Black” works well for me.

Another somewhat more industrial product called “Rubber Renue” is also quite good.

Here is a picture of a couple of cowl drain hoses from a 510 that I “restored” yesterday. Guess which one got the Back to Black treatment after a good scrubbing to remove oxidation and dirt.

Also amazed at the condition of these soft rubber hoses after 53 years.
