If your after a cheap and effective way to restore your old tired looking bumpers it to use peanut butter, linseed oil. Or if your feeling adventurous you can heat them up with a heat gun and once they've cooled down give them a wipe and then rub olive oil into them  Thumb

I can vouch for this one Gaz as recently tried this on my 94 Velle that had Very Grey bumpers Embarassed

I also found that you can make it go on easier and last longer by adding a little oil into the mix Wink

The natural Oils in Peanut butter are fine but they often don't last so I put a little extra oil in an mixed well.

Olive Oil
New Engine Oil
New Transmission Fluid
3 in 1

All help choose whatever you have to hand Wink

Just don't put the Peanut Butter back in the fridge Help

I just scoop a few spoon out into an old clean butter tub then add a little oil and mix well  Thumb

Then just rub well in and buff off  Thumb

Here are pics of my results.............
