Finally found a way to restore plastic, a quick tip

Well I have been searching for a way to restore my plastic for a while and havnt had much luck. I have tried a few different products like back to black from mothers and a few others....didnt have much luck. I was sick of using tire shine and it running onto the paint a few days later. Any who, get you a heat gun and go over it real slow. ITS FEAKING MAGIC!! It literally brings it back to new and stays that way! Thought I would throw this tip out there and pass it along, I found it pretty impressive! After I did my truck I did our work truck at the shop. Check it out

That is just by using a heat gun on it or is that putting the tire shine on it and then using the heat gun?

I ordered some (forever black) and did my wife's jeep fenders and my door handles. It has worked very good for 2 months so far.
