Refinishing bumpers and side mirror 1986 Sprint

I need to know how to restore the finish on my bumpers. The side mirrors need restoring as well.

What would be the best option for refinishing?
I have cleaned them using soapy water and found them to be in good condition.

Its just the finish that looks bad.

Thumbs Up Refurbishing black plastic

Hi, this topic has come up a few times recently and I have seen a few solutions including branded products specifically for the job and also vaseline, which I've tried myself and does seem to work although does not give a deep black finish.

Try a search of this forum using keywords like black and bumpers and I'm sure you'll find many useful tips.

i had trouble with my suds bumpers which had faded to grey and after trying a few things (not least resorting to spraying the rear one with vinyl paint ) i tried this after it being recomended
Carplan Original Black 500ml from Halfords Price 1.00 3 For 2 On ALL Car Cleaning Products
it works a treat, and if it is available at halfords for 1 a can then i will be buying up plenty, especially at the 3 for 2 offer
