If you did videos of the process to get such finishes, you'd be satiating a lot of people believe me. People get off to it amazing results btwOk, it's a NEW YEAR and under sincere request from my better half of 26 years, I'm trying to become more "Jolly and Happy Go Lucky Like You Used To Be " and less "Cantankerous Like You've Become "
So...I’m going to share with you and everybody else who bothers to read this, one of my most carefully guarded secrets.
I do full restorations occasionally and offer "Best Possible Condition" detailing and this is one of my best techniques in that process.
You are going to LOVE this!
BMW plastics are unusually sensitive to UV rays. They love to oxidize and turn grayish black instead of black. However, they are HIGH QUALITY plastics and this is EASILY fixed.
You may need to buy a case of this product and have it shipped to you, but you will use it and you will fall in love with it. I promise. Find the best price you can. It’s Pro-Shine by Pro Car Beauty Products.

Start with a clean surface free of dirt and grease. I just wash and use Simple Green in a spray bottle to degrease. Make sure the surface is completely dry and free of water.
You spray the ProShine (literally soak the surface until it looks WET).
Wait 30 Minutes. Soak it again. If especially UV damaged, do this a 3rd time.
Let soak in and the aerosol chemical to evaporate OVERNIGHT! Don't touch it. Leave it alone to do it's work. The plastic will actually take the chemical into itself a couple of microns into the surface.
Next day, wipe gently with nice soft towel. I use inexpensive microfiber towels from Walmart.
So, what happens…. Nothing short of magic! You will not believe it.
You think I’m bullshitting you or exaggerating? Ha!
I’m not kidding! If you do this exactly as I tell you, you will consistently get this result. It last for months and months, and if stored indoors, it has lasted as long as a year before I redo it.
NOTE: It may look greasy like Armor All or other garbage like that, but it is not. Not in the slightest. It does not attract dust, and it will penetrate into the plastic and actually restore the luster and resiliency.

Told you I wasn't kidding... This is a 1987 BMW K75-C. THAT'S 35 year old plastic! The owner was absolutely speechless when he came and got it.
Look at the frame, mirror, cables, even the cloth fabric wire tape, the whole thing!
This product is the finest of its kind I have ever used. I fully endorse PRO Beauty Products. They make the very best stuff, period. I was a legend at their distributor store in San Diego. People would seek me out to restore and detail their motorcycles, especially for taking to concourse shows.
Use it on any motorcycle from head to toe on anything black, wires, grips, footpegs, fenders, frame, brake lines, black painted fork legs, the backs of mirrors, grab handles, everything.
WARNING! DO NOT SPRAY IT ONTO CLEAR PLASTIC LENSES LIKE DASHBOARDS AS THE CHEMICAL CAN CAUSE A HAZE ON CLEAR PLASTIC. IF YOU GET OVERSPRAY ONTO CLEAR PLASTIC, JUST WIPE IT OFF WITHIN A FEW MINUTES. NO HARM.
Your motorcycle will look brand new again! The other benefit is the aerosol spray goes into every nook and cranny to restore the finish on plastic pieces with irregular shapes and surfaces.
