Use a heat gun. I saw a couple videos on you tube. I have not done it yet to my truck.

Best thing I did, which I love, is Duplicolor makes spray on bed liner ($8) in a aerosol can. I taped everything off real well and sprayed everything plastic / metal. I did the bed rails, front bumper, side steps, rear bumper caps... It looks awesome and doesnt seem to fade yet

The meguires stuff is good. Back to black from Mothers sucks, don't use it. But the Meguires Ultimate black stuff is good. It goes on in a gel form, and lasts a few washes. I used it on my 04 Volvo and it brought almost the whole thing back to life. The only part it didnt was the black rear molding. I actually am going to be doing my truck plastics this weekend if all goes as planned. First thing tomorrow AM or tonight if wife works late.

I painted the bed caps and rear window trim on my old 97' F150 and it held up for a few years without any sign of fading. Used Krylon Fusion Satin black.

theres that commercial on tv I think its called wipe new lol it lasts for 200 washes yeah right i bet it doesn't work at all...I wonder if you can buy a replacement piece mine is doing the same and the one corner piece is bent up rubbing paint off my quarter panel. The problem with painting it with duplicolor is once it starts chipping then it looks terrible and has to be re done

I sprayed my plastic with 3-4 coats of Plasti-Dip. All of them. Its been about 8 months....... so far they holding up really good. The truck looks all ways like it just got washed..........That stuff stays black and rich looking.
The only wear is at the side steps, around the edges, but honestly its very easy stuff to work with & do touch ups.
There is alot of threads in here about Plasti-Dip & alot of posts with pics.

Title on hand like always
