QUOTE (oakpark @ Nov 6 2011, 11:43 PM) *
The front bumper cap/cover/crown rubber piece on my '73 is in good shape however it looks a little rough, like the one on the red rust 914 above.
Any suggestions for restoring the component other than Armorall?
Thank you for your suggestions.

I do use armorall to restore the look on my bumper caps, but put it on with a sponge. You'd be surprised how black the sponge gets from taking off dirt and what I would guess is oxidized rubber. I replaced both bumper tops about 20 years ago and they still look great after twice a year armorall. Hope that helps.

I am a bit late to this post, but I use some AWESOME stuff that kills armor-all. It ain't cheap, but it is AWESOME. 303 Aerospace Protectorant. I use it on my Ski Nautique, inside and on the hull. It protects and even repells dirt. On the car I use it on my tires, dash, convertible top (not 914), any vinyl or rubber etc.... They will send you free samples (you pay the shipping $7) at the link below...then buy a GALLON.

They have a cleaner too.

Check out 914rubber.com.

Mark Whitesell had reprofuced MANY NLA rubber parts, and his bumper tops are the best! Stainless, rather than ferrous metal supports and the finish is great!

I bought F&R tops even though I don't currently need the, as well as numerous other repro rubber pieces.
