Dull Paintwork On The Front Of My 2009 Challenger

Hi, I've just purchased a 2009 Swift Challenger.

The paintwork on the front is dull compared to the rest of the van

The front panel is plastic as is the rear but the rear is fine really glossy

Just wondering if anyone has had the same problem or any advise on how to get the front looking like the rest of the caravan?

Cheers Shaun

I, and many others, have the same problem. Try very fine polishing compound.

It is a 1st class service offered from a company based in Leicestershire, obviously I've not used them myself as I offer similar services but I don't travel as far as these lads do. They've a website so google 'tourershine' and you'll get them.

From their reviews on here they're obviously very good at what they do.

The rear panel will probably be ABS, ABS is much more whiter and high gloss. The front panel is made from GRP and unfortunately do tend to go dull and have a creamy colour. You will be able to machine polish the panel but you will be lucky to bring it back white. Hope you get somewhere with it.
