Lightbulb EA-EB-ED Faded Door Handles - Quick Fix

Howdy Everyone,

I have been looking for a solution to fix my faded door handles for a while now and last week i decided to try "Home Brand" Cooking Spray. The cooking spray in the car. I sprayed it on and it foams up, then i rubbed it off with a cloth and BoooM! Door handles that look new! I dont know weather or not other people also have faded cruise control button, but my were i did this and they look like new! It has been on there for a week now i i say that the cooking spray works!

Cheers,
Hope i was a help.
Robert

Or you can got to the effort of removing them altogether and colour coding them!

Re: EA-EB-ED Faded Door Handles - Quick Fix

the real detailers trick is to rub peanut butter on black faded trim. Your nieghbours may think your a bit 'nutty' tho if they see you doing it....

Re: EA-EB-ED Faded Door Handles - Quick Fix

Its probably just the oil in the peanut butter doing the trick, plastics key ingrediant is oil.

Re: EA-EB-ED Faded Door Handles - Quick Fix

Yeah well i thought that it might just rub off, but the plastic must be pories because it seams to soak in. Works great on the plastic grill in front of the windscreen wipers too! Really it works on all plastic surfaces... i went crazy with the stuff!

Cheers,
Be sure to watch my cooking show in SBS.... lol
