    Mine is getting the same way...I did what I could to bring it back.
    Never even thought to polish/protect that strip.

    Did okay on it...but it could use some paint.

    It's the bar between the t-tops, where the t-tops slide in, in the center of car. The part exposed when t-tops are removed looks great but the 2-3 inch strip that is always exposed looks more like a grayish tint than black. Looks fine when wet but dry looks like crap. I believe it is plastic and is attached by screws. I was wondering if there might be something to buff it back or clean it with. Also, if painting it is the solution, will I need the base and clear, or is there a can glossy black that would look good. Thanks

    It is painted aluminum.
    (I have one available that has been repainted if anyone is interested. $25 shipped.)
    Or sometimes you can find them on Ebay for sale.
    Yes, you can possibly use Plast-X to buff it. Not sure it will bring it back or not, but it should.
