I picked up a 2017 Zero FXS today that has lots of black plastic bits that are now some off shade of grey. I read elsewhere that Polytrol works great on plastics. But they are out of stock and seems to be mainly available in Europe.



Does anyone have another suggestion that is more readily available in the US?

Solution Finish works great. They have both a Black and Gray. You might also want to try CarPro Dlux Coating. It darkens up plastics and locks in the seal as it's a penetrating coating on plastics. I usually try Dlux first as it's accomplishes both a restoration and coating in one. A few drops goes a long way. If it's too far gone or if the customer isn't paying for a coating, I use Solution Finish.

Thanks for the reply. Nothing that my local auto parts store worked very well. They actually didn't mind me bringing in one panel and dabbing on a sample. In the end, I painted the panels white. The whole thing looks better in white anyway.

What applicator to you recommend for that and do you need to tape off to apply?
