Default Inner fender well cleanup

Anyone have any good tips to make the plastic inner fender wells look nice again? I always try to keep mine nice but I think the road hash has taken its toll.

I think I can buy the fronts for 60 or 70 bucks and might do that but was curious if anyone has had any luck with compound or anything.

You could try steam cleaning them.

Wonder what the conditioning is? Mine are clean. Just hazed from road use.

I will have to check that out in detail as there is big improvement in those pics

CQuartz UK paint coating was used. Looks like it does everything short of stopping world hunger.

CQuartz Ceramic Quartz Paint Protection, CQuartz nano coating, nano paint sealant

Chemical Guys - Bare Bones Undercarriage Spray (16 oz.) will bring them back to looking dark again. I use the stuff on mine and love it.

I decided I am going to start new again and will try the chemicals mentioned above for upkeep. Can buy both inner fenders new (GM brand) shipped off Amazon for little over $110. Both my rubber flaps attached to them are brittle and broke when I moved them anyway.

So just ordered new and wont have to do any clean up for a while.

Good move. Upkeep on new ones should be cake if you stay on top of it

Brandon, was not sure about the aftermarket fit and finish. I assume it was good?

I am guessing you also had shipping on top of that?

Well I have 4 new fender wells now that should only get fairweather driving. So will use undercarriage spray from now on. Mine were clean originals but had road abrasion on no matter what I used it showed.

You can buy gm liners for front for about $50.
