Hi All -

I'm in the process of restoring my 1987 300 TD. I've noticed that the door handles are very faded and am wondering if there are any products out there that can bring back their original color.

Thanks!

Mothers back to black works really well. After you use that, go over it with ICE liquid polish. Makes the handles look new.

Are those handles a grey or black plastic type of material? If they are rub them with peanut butter ( I am serious). This does seem to work on that era door handles.
