One of the best car care products ever...
September 25, 2016
This is perhaps the single best car product I have ever used based on price, performance, and solving a nagging problem.
I have a car with a lot of black plastic trip. It was fading and getting pretty old looking. I tried a few other things and had blotchy, inconsistent results.The products I tried that dye the plastic black were consistently terrible and messy. Then I tried this stuff.
It gets your black trim looking new again. It goes on easily. It's easy to get off paint and windows. It doesn't run. And it's easy to reapply. I use it on my black stuff about every 2-3 months. Those parts look fantastic.
A few tips: the instructions say to use it generously. Do so. For very faded plastic it can take a lot of product. For some of my very neglected plastic it took 2 or three treatments. If it looks blochy after a few hours or a day, give it another coat. When I first started using this I was not going heavy enough. I now go pretty heavy, let it dwell for a minute or two, and then wipe off the excess. If you buff it will get a little gloss. I prefer most of my stuff to be flat black so I give a gentle wipe and no buffing.
My car also has some harder, shiny plastic parts. I don't use this on them. It doesn't seem to penetrate the shiny parts. Bumpers, black plastic door handles, plastic wheel arch trim, exterior rubber window trim, roof rack plastic - all look new with this stuff. It goes on easily, doesn't run after applying, is waterproof (or very water resistant), and seems to last quite a while. I don't know how long it would last because I reapply fairly frequently. This stuff is a pleasure to use. Not that it's an oily substance - I recommend wearing a glove as it will likely get on your hand.
I wish I had some before and after pictures. This stuff has completely restored my plastic door handles, wheel trim, and other plastic parts. I don't use this on tires. For those I use DG Tire and Rubber Matt Dressing.
