I have several scratches around the tailgate handle on the black plastic not the paint. Anyone had any success removing these? TIA

i agree bedline it, easy fix. It will cover the scratches and if you get more you can just take it off and do it again later.

Yep, bedline it or buy the carbon fiber cover from the guy on here. Or, buy the chrome cover from ebay or many other sites.

Autozone carries a paint specifically created for all exterior black plastic trim items. I bought a can but have not had a chance yet to prep, mask, paint, etc. My 08 has suffered severely from the North Texas sun!

I have used plastic paints before and they work. make damn sure you get all the silicone and protectant off. scuff with scoth brite pads to get good adherance and also wipe the heck 10 times with a pre-cleaner. it might start to melt the plastic, just rub quick. I got good results. otherwise, it spotted on me because I used all those protectants. I have a 2004 and I am going to do the same thing. I noticed the cowl piece faded the worst and the top of my mud flaps. bumper pieces also. I used mothers back to black and it works great, but its constant. I want permanent like you. Good Luck. [post before and after results!

cheers

I have the same problem. I will try the plastic paint since I don't prefer bedlining.
Rustoleum bedliner is much thinner than typical bedliner. You might want to get a can a spray a piece of scrap wood or cardboard to test it.

It would depend on what your mother tongue is. For English speakers, Asian languages tend to be the most difficult, and I expect that would apply to most Europeans. Languages like Chinese which use tones to convey word meanings are very hard for us to learn to speak fluently.
Zhongguohua hen nan!!
WTF is that?

I had the same problem, but I went ahead and filed/sanded the scratches off then bedlined them. Worked like a charm :D
