Default Bring back the black

I want to restore the black on my bumpers. I have heard of some stuff that actually soaks in and lasts longer. Also the same company makes a cleaner to restore the headlights. They were advertised on one of the Saturday car shows but I can't remember the companies name. Anyone have a clue cuz obviously I don't

i use black magic tire shine. It works on all plastics. I use it on my mirrors and door handles and bed rails and ect.. It last as long as it doesn't get wet. But others/most" will say just paint it and never worry about it again.

I like STP's Son of a Gun that stuff was really good back in the day. Mother's Back to Black is some good stuff, but I recomend using gloves while using it because that stuff runs very badly.
