If you own a car that is over 10 years old with black plastic bumper inserts or black bumpers, then odds are they’re faded and dull looking, thus cheapening the look of your ride. Sure there are plastic restoration kits that you can purchase, but those can be expensive and sometimes they’ll do more harm then good if not used correctly. Not long ago I came across this little video of someone using a heat gun to brighten up their black-work. Now, granted I’ve never personally tried this, however it does seem to work well. Plus, it seems like a cheap and easy alternative to a full repaint or dye. This is a pretty cool backyard trick if you ask me.
