Default Rally Armor Flaps Restoration

Had the flaps for around two years, took them off and the gloss wasnt matching. I want to have the gloss back, see the left side and the right side.

What are your suggestions to do to restore the gloss?

....I would try a plastic or light polish. If you need something stronger you can try Meguiars Ultimate Compound followed by something like Swirl-X, Plast-X, Ultimate Polish, etc. Just be sure to check your work often to make sure you're getting the desired result.

I would clean them real well with some APC and a magic eraser the try the plastic polish like Megs PlasticX. First try in a small area to make sure it works just like anything you try for the firsts time.

Adams In and Out spray?


Also from RA's FAQ:

Quote:
With the launch of our UR series, the main goal of providing a premium, flexible, urethane application that protects and looks great at fraction of the cost of any true bolt on urethane solution is achieved. Flexible (not "floppy"), superb strength, long term durability and protection are the characteristics the UR series provides for your vehicle. The gloss finish is a characteristic of this application when new, and will matte down after use.

i have the same mud flaps but i know this will sound crazy.try mop&glow for the floors that would put the shine on your tile floors.well that will restore them for a short time.you will have to do it about once a month otherwise your other option will be to buy new ones

The gloss is bad! At the right angle from behind it will reflect headlights causing bad glare.
