    Cleaning/Polishing rear spoiler on a Prius

    I was curious what experiences you guys removing etchings or stains from rear plastic spoilers on a Prius? Unfortunately I do not have a picture but it is something I will take a look at and work on later this week.

    Re: Cleaning/Polishing rear spoiler on a Prius

    I have never done a Prius spoiler, but have polished several smooth black plastic spoiler along with mirrors.

    I like to use Menzerna 3 in 1 with a orange or white thinpro pad.

    Just soft black Toyota paint to polish. Might need a compound as many of them are pretty heavily abused for some reason.

    The Prius spoilers oxidize fast for some reason

    Am I the only one who finds it funny that a Prius has a spoiler?

    No but it sure does make them look a hell of a lot better in the rear end

    Not as soon as they're all oxidized.. Key word being soon. Lol.

    But I guess it helps add to a detailers job security.

    Exactly what I was thinking! The definition of "irony" perhaps?
