it's paint cleaner, polish, and wax.

very happy with results.

Faded Molding

Hello:

Your car looks great. I waxed mine yesterday and had the opertunity to get very critical about it's condition. The black plastic on my 9-3 is has faded to a dull gray. Is there anything I can do about restoring or replacing it?

Lionsgraphics,

Please tell me where you bought the little clear blinkers. I have seen the ones on genuinesaab.com and others around here but they look more smoke than clear. Yours look pretty clear. I am interested in a set that is more clear.

Thanks!

The blinkers that Taliaferro Saab (GenuineSaab) sells, which are the factory ones, are clear. The lens is clear, but there's a piece of black plastic behind it, so they look clear from some angles and smoked from others.

thnx everyone for comments.

I say buy an exterior plastic restorer cleaner protectant (look for these words). Spray it see how it goes. It should make it shiny. If not i dunno what to do. :(

One thing that always cracks me up when I see US-spec cars is that "object in mirror are closer than they appear" on the mirrors.

Don't you guys have driver's ed?? Are the driving licenses being handed out randomly?

It's because of the over-litigation happy people in our country. Same reason why McDonald's coffee cups say "CAUTION!!! HOT LIQUID!!"

love it!
