ugly bumper

Please forgive if a search would've answered this question, but the center section (which AS tech said is fiberglas) has faded and fogged -- looks awful. Was advised to buff it back to original luster... uh uh, not even close. The adjacent panels look like new (some nonfiberglas material such as plastic). The question is, do others w/three year old trailers have this bumper blight and is replacing that center section with the same material as the outside pieces an option? We're all cyberears... thanks for any help on this.

Can you post a photo of the affected area? We may be able to help more, if we had visual aids.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Our top center bumper faded within months after it was purchased new. The two sides next to it look like new. We use something like armorall to bring the original color back but it only lasts a couple of months.

Ours is a 2002 25' Classic. I'll try to get a picture. The weather here in the NW won't let that bumper dry out enough to take the shot. Hey,maybe that is the solution... as long as it stays wet, it looks ok.
