    The black plastic piece on the top of my rear bumper, under the hatch is faded and really looks bad. Can I remove it somehow? Or will I have to tape around it and refinish it on the vehicle?

    Mines a 2008. I searched and couldn’t find much besides “use a heat gun” which I’ve done before but is really tedious and time consuming.

    Tire shine makes the faded plastic really shine in its not-very-Black anymore glory.

    I pulled it up, and repainted it black with Krylon Fusion. Looks perfect and brand new.
