Great product recommendation for all of the plastic on the back end of our cars:

I have tried waxing the tail lights and the black plastic panel between them, but have not been satisfied with the results, as everything looks kind of cloudy and if you don't take the product off with velvet gloves, they scratch VERY easily.
I use this on my plastic lenses on my glasses:




I decided what the heck and tried it on the rear end and all of the plastic there. I am VERY happy with the results:




Use only a microfiber towel, and rub gently when taking off the Plexus. You also don't even need to let it dry, as you are supposed to take it off while it is still wet.
And it is anti-static, so it will be interesting to see if it repels dust better, as the whole back end seems to attract dust after driving for a short period of time.

You are welcome! Don't be too surprised at the price of this stuff, and watch to make sure you are buying the 12 oz. not the 7 oz size when checking prices.
You really don't use very much at all for each application. All it takes is a very light spritz for each section.
If you buy some of this and use it on your car, please come back here and let me know how you like it --- (also works GREAT on plastic lenses on your glasses!).....
I did not mention this in my original post above, but it works well on your headlight lenses too.

Here's what I use... Great product that also repels dust/dirt. Might be a little easier on the budget...

Try eBay, as I know it is there and I am pretty sure Amazon has it as well.
I think I may have bought mine several years ago at my local O'Reilly's Auto parts -- but a quick phone call to your store of choice should tell you whether you have to do it on line or not.

You use that on your hard plastic tail lights and the panel between them? Isn't that kind of greasy? I use 303 on the tires and love it, but I don't think that I'd use that on the rear end stuff.....

303 works great on plastics. Headlight covers, taillights, black trim. You just need to wipe it dry. Once you get rid of the excess and don't leave any residue behind its shiny as hell. Added benefits are that it repels dirt and has UV protection.

This stuff is almost like Chris Rock's mama giving him Robitussin for everything. Lol

Believe it or not, it even shines up painted stuff nicely as a quick detail, although I think they now have a product designed just for that.
