Next project is to pull the rear bumper and apply some rust primer/preventer behind the rear bumper. Did the front last year. However the plastic trim on the bumpers seems like it's faded and isn't that deep grey color anymore. Lower valance on front looks good enough.

Any fixes for this plastic or just have to buy new? Found the pieces on Amazon for like $200 total.

You might try heating the plastic with a heat gun or torch to get the color back. Should be able to find some videos on YouTube if you are curious about it

I've done that in the past on some interior panel stuff, but I'm not sure I could get it even/consistent enough across an entire bumper cover. I was hoping there was some magic detailer that would bring it back to life.

Any "magic" detailers will all have to be reapplied with some regularity. Heat gun takes some skill, but will last years (though should still have protectant applied with some regularity).

I did adhesion promotor then SEM Trim Black (fender flares and windshield cowl). Looks good, but then you are stuck with painted plastic pieces from then on.

No perfect solution, sadly.

Thanks, I'll try some deep cleaning and some Black Magic I have on hand first, maybe I'll get lucky. If not guess I'm buying some parts.

Oh, one more that I tried... a Mr Clean magic eraser did a pretty good job getting things 'close'. I did it because I got my flares used and I wanted to give them a good cleaning. That might help the Black Magic or whatever work better.
