    So I will never again go to a car detailer. I brought it to a local place, and they must have had mr. First timer do my car. He used wax on my car, and ended up doing all my plastic panels. I tried wiping it off with water and a rag, but it did not work. I don't want to start throwing any harsh...

    At one point I tried the Meguiars NXT wax. That was a huge mistake because it didn't last very long, and I got a little bit on the plastic around the mirrors and it left ugly white spots on the plastic. I tried everything to clean it, but seems to be impossible to remove from plastic. Someone...

    Someone's thread a while back reminded me that the some of the plastic in the Cruze interior seems to scratch rather easily. Specifically, I am thinking of the silver painted plastic piece that goes around the shifter knob/HVAC controls, and the one for the radio. To me, these pieces look like...

    I backed my snowmobile trailer into the side of the car and made a scuff in the bumper around 6 inches long, it did split the bumper at the very end of the scuff. Anyone know what to use to fix this? A bondo kind of stuff for plastic, all the body shops want to replace the bumper cover which...

I going to secure them by drilling a hole into the plastic fender liner and securing them with the same plastic fasteners that you see secure various plastic parts throughout car.

    My '12 Eco seems to have bad karma! It has been bumped multiple times over the last year. I have holes in both covers. I'm an experienced bodyman and want to weld the holes, but need to know what filler to use. If someone has a cover off the car and can post the type plastic (abs, TPO...) on the...

    Turned out it wasn't the door panel like I thought. I could hear a bad buzzing sound at low rpm under load. Rough textured roads made it worse. It seemed to be coming from the passenger side front door panel but I could never pinpoint it. It was coming from the cosmetic round center cover...
