    The tire shine products work wonders on plastics, try it first.

    Yep a heat gun works wonders especially on blue plastic. start in one spot moving the gun slowly in a rotational movement, the keep working your way across the plastic.

    Default Resurrection of an old thread. . .

    The title just caught my eye and synapsed with something I saw on the tube this past weekend..

    A product called 'Cascade Plastic Booster'

    CASCADED PLASTIC BOOSTER INFO

    I 'believe' the active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide.
    You might just check that out, too.

    NO affiliation and I HAVE NO CLUE IF IT WORKS OR HARMS...
    Use at own risk... but, well, the 'concept' makes sense to me... YMMV

    Just trying to make your 'day brighter!' (Get it?)

    Good Luck!!

    Old post buy why not...


    Try Aerospace 333 before you break out the heat gun. Good stuff.
    The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.
