Factory chrome side step question.

I dont know what I got on my side steps but the black plastic step pieces are turning light in color. kinda grey. Tried armoral but they still dont want to turn back black.

Anyone have this happen to them. These are the factory chrome steps.

I wonder if you can replace just the plastic step pieces?
Part # anyone?

Before you apply the Mothers, use a plain old pencil eraser. It will get rid of the residue and the Mothers will spruce it up even more. (The eraser works well for wax residue too.) I personally prefer 303 over Mothers, but I like a "not so glossy" black.

Wax? Like the wax you get on the black plastic that doesn't come off

Yep, give it a try. I thought it was nuts the first time somebody told me about it, but it really works.
