FADING BLACK PLASTIC THAT CAN BE SCRAPED OFF BY FINGER NAIL 2007 range rover sport
So the plastic that lies below my windshield where my wipers are attached is becoming ver faded and there is a layer on it that can be scraped off with my finger nail. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Any solutions? Seems like the plastic has reached an over oxidized point (does that make sense)

Im thinking replace it
It can either be rather easy or rather challenging
It all depends if the windshield wipers unbolt or if you have to use a puller to remove them

Have you thought of trying a plastic restorer/dye?

You will have to replace that windshield cowl - it's toast. I use Mcguire's Back To Black and everything is covered from the elements. I get asked very often about how my plastic looks so new. I started using it after I had to replace my windshield cowl from fading.

You can use Swissvax Protecton to restore the black finish, however that won't do anything for the damage already done by cracking, scratching, peeling, etc... but it will make it look "nourished" again. on something that dried out, multiple applications will certainly be necessary...
Your best bet would be to replace the cowl, as it's pretty far gone if it comes off by scratching it with your nail, and maintain it in the future with Swissvax Nano Express or Swissvax Protecton so that it will always maintain the "new" finish without leaving any oily residue.

Well I dislike the plastic frame it is not durable and when you drive it so hard so it can be thrill..I probably like to the iron coated frame, if he plastic is of ABS material then could be durable.
