Default outside back trim panel polishing etc....

Good day to all of you here.

i just got this 2001 Chevy blazer and in which the body is in very good condition, but it is giving me a hard time lately as it is going to the shop this Friday to have the PCM re programmed since i can't re program the security feature, but that is another story .....

i have the back plastic or trim panel on my 2 door 4x4 Blazer which feels very rough. i was wondering if you guys know of a way to polish those back black panel so it can be smooth again as i wash my SUV, it just rip my whole washing mitten away.








Thanks again and hope to hear from all of you.

Most likely, you're going to need to sand it and repaint it. If its as rough as you say it is, a polish and a rag (or buffer) wont work. Tape it off, wet sand it and then get some good paint and clearcoat! Best of luck!

way back when i used to detail cars in the late 90s we would commonly buff those out, the plastic there and that black plastic that went up on the doors of gm cars and trucks too.... but yeah that looks beyond repair. almost looks like someone rhinolined it but i think its just very faded

You could use a light body filler to smooth out, then paint. Possibly a body glaze as it's lighter and thinner to apply.
