Yes, can confirm that ordinary black shoe polish gave a gloss shine to the above cab skylight surround. Not exactly an all over perfect shine on application when viewed very close-up, but that being only the first attempt. From below it did indeed look clean and very black. On visiting the van (in storage) this morning, noticed earlier rain had readily beaded on the black surface. smile!

 I have restored mine on our Broadway about 10 times so far, each time taking a full morning! Not fun! wrote:

May I just add to my earlier post this am, the application and eventual buffing of the shoe polish took only about 25 minutes including the initial cleaning and several manoeuvres with the telescopic ladder.

Hi All
I also have been disappointed with the dulling of the black panels on our Beckford. After using everything from McGuire’s products, turtle wax etc I decided to give the Auto Gym product mentioned above a go. After trying every where here in Auckland to get I went to a marine the supply company to see if they had it. No joy but when I mentioned what I was trying to achieve I was told only product to use is Grunt. Ok nothing to lose so last weekend I applied it.
Amazing result and very easy to use. It does the work and takes very little effort. Within 2 weeks of using it the grunt wax should be applied. I did this the next day and all that needs to be done now is to wait and see how long it lasts.
To give it its proper name it is Grunt Kleenashine and Grun Supawax polish.
It can be applied in direct sunlight which is a huge benefit.
I have also checked and it is available from marine supply companies in the UK
Suggest you give it a go
Regards
Geoff

It worked a treat and they look like new, so he tried it on the skylight surround and it works there as well. I took his advice and got it, have used it on the plastic covers but have yet to try it on the roof as I am trying to figure a way to get up there safely.
Picking up on an old thread, I use Autoglym bumper & trim gel , used it on my previous vans including our Duettos black vinyl panels, more black plastic trim on our Warwick and the gel brings up the black a treat.
