  • Cleaning up red seatbelt receptical buttons

    Hi all. The red plastic buttons for the seatbelt female recepticals are white and faded. When I scratch them with my fingernail, they seem to show red below.

    Has anyone restored these to their original red finish?

    I know this is such a minor thing, but my car just comeleted a 3 year restoration and those stick out like a sore thumb in an otherwise brand new interior.

    Burnishing with a pointy but rounded piece of brass (like a house key) seems to work. I'd tried applying a bit of WD-40 but that didn't keep mine red for long.

      Meguiar's PlastX Plastic Cleaner might work
      This space is a sanctimonious shit free zone.

        I hear they can be cleaned up but I just bought new ones. They are still available
