    It's actually Polymer Chemistry, but it's all good

    Thanks for the tip, but I think I will leave that sort of thing to the experts or risk cocking it up

    You can sometimes replenish plastics by heating them up with a heat gun, no I have NOT gone mad

    But this only works on textured plastic so please DO NOT try this, plus you would know doubt scorched the paint on the plastic mirror casing.

    But this is what you can sometimes get away with doing



    And that’s magic
    Thanks for sharing that tip Neil
