Had mine ceramic coated. My detailer is coming over today cause he didn't like the way the fenders look. Don't get me wrong they are shiny and black but he's a perfectionist . I'll let you know what he is using.

Thanks. Mounted RSE step sliders yesterday and i figured they’d match more in color. Don’t get me wrong, love the look, but figure maybe my fenders need some talc. I know they’ll never be jet black.

I don't have my new Jeep yet, so I haven't tried it on the Wrangler fenders, but I've used Aerospace 303 on the black plastic exterior parts of my last 2 cars with good success.

I have been using 303 on mine and turtle wax ice on my daughter's. Both potions work visibly equal. I tend to like the turtle wax ice more because I can use it on metal and plastic.

Through the years, I've used a good number of trim restoratives. None of them lasted nearly as long as the promises on the label. I eventually discovered Black Again. It's a pro product that is now available after being off the market for a few years. Recommended without reservation.

Left: original product, circa 1995, carefully preserved. Used on my YJ.
Right: product currently sold after its reintroduction.

Another vote for Turtle Wax Ice, although I haven't tried any of the others. I use it because i can use it on everything - metal, fenders, hardtop, handles, etc. It keeps things easy - which means I'm more likely to do it. 2+ years so far and everything still looks great.

For black plastic, I am a big fan of WipeNew. It lasts the longest out of all of the products I’ve used.
