Restore Faded Trim w/ Heatgun

Warm weather has arrived so today I pulled out my $9.99 heat gun (on sale at Harbor Freight) and went to work.

The side trim pieces are adjacent to metal on the door panels, so basic care is sufficient. The bumper trim, however, is adjacent to plastic so I used a thin metal bracket as a heat shield. In the photos below I am holding the heat shield along the bottom edge, then holding the heat shield to guard the top edge.
