Mothers Back To Black Bumper & Trim Care

Mothers Back To Black Bumper & Trim Care
Recapture and maintain that subtle, classy shine of new exterior trim.

Even if your car is brand new now, you’ll want to keep it looking that way for years to come. The detailing experts at Mothers™ are always busy testing new and better ways to retain that new car look, and with Back To Black they’ve succeeded. Time and weather conditions – even driving conditions all take their toll on exterior surfaces. And Trim often gets the worst of it. Many trim surfaces are porous and tend to absorb the impurities they come in contact with. That’s why exterior trim can get a sunburned appearance when its neglected.

Mothers™ Back To Black is ideal for a variety of exterior hardware. It’s called Back To Black, but it works great on all colors of exterior trim. If it’s made of plastic or vinyl Back To Black will breath new life into it. Use Back To Black on molding, louvers, bumpers, window trim, skirts, seals, door handles, wiper arms and any exterior vinyl or plastic surfaces.

Back To Black cleans and reconditions the surface. So it not only changes or improves the way the effected area looks, but it alters the way it feels. Leaving it softer, smoother, and more supple with long lasting moisturizers. It easily removes white residues, yellowing, and that awful brownish appearance on sunburned trims. Back To Black does not leave behind a greasy residue that attracts dust and yellows over time, rather it revives that show-room quality sheen.

Mothers™ Back To Black has been formulated for ease of application and great durability – it won’t wash off with the first puddle you drive through. Feel free to retreat surfaces as often as you would like.

If you want to get or keep that classy sheen try Mothers™ Back To Black and enjoy a factory-new look for years to come.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Pretty good
July 12, 2015
This got rid of some decent wax stains and brought out the black in my 2003's faded trim. It doesn't wash off too fast. I get about 4-6 good weeks out of it. The more I have used it the longer it seems to last.
Lasts longer than the last product I tried. Goes on easy, I can see the dirt and crud coming off when I rub it in. Made my sealant stains go away. Doesn't leave big oily runs in the rain.
Wish it lasted longer but I'm satisfied

Seems to work just fine
November 5, 2014
I bought a 7 year old Honda Element which spend most of it's life parked outside. The external black plastic parts were pretty gray and tatty looking. Back to Black easily restored them to nearly new condition without a lot of work. Of course time will tell if it lasts more than a week and that's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. If it lasts a while, I would rate it as a five.
VERY east to apply. Works great.
None unless the very good results don't last. Time will tell.

DOES Leave Greasy Residue
May 28, 2013
While the product does an excellent job at restoring faded plastic, I've found it tends to leave a greasy residue all over the car's black paint. The residue is made worse by the rain, and you can clearly see on the paint where it's run of from water. Washing the car doesn't remove the residue either, so I'm currently researching what will. I don't think this would be such an issue with a lighter colored car, but on black it looks terrible.

It's ok

This product does work, but I have found it not to dry evenly. There are plenty of other trim dressings that are easier to use and provide the same level of gloss (if that's your thing) as this one does.

Works Well
April 15, 2012
RainX is for windows, Wax is for paint, and Back to black seems to be for trim. And it works. Really brought back the color, water-repelancy and smoothness of the trim, especially on painted black metal trim. I was excited by the outcome. I have tried many other non trim products, like wax, interior dressings, even tire shine, and they really don't work well.

2003 Trailblazer
May 4, 2011
The exterior trim on my 2003 Trailblazer was very faded(white, chalky look). The first time I bought Mothers Back to Black I applied a thick layer on the trim and buffed it after a few minutes. In the rain it would run and leave an oily residue on the paint. I then applied according to the instructions and gave me excellent results. I applied it a month ago and it hasn't washed off with the rain. The key is to apply several thin coats instead of one thick coat. Another excellent product from Mothers.

I just got some of the Mother's Back-To-Black. I went home and apply this product to all the black trim. It really does restore the shine of the black trim again. I don't know how long it will last though. Hopefully at least a month when I wash my truck again. For the oxidation, I'm not sure if will actually remove it from the trim. But if you have some time and strength to do some hard work. Give it a try, I'm still trying to take it off of my door trim on the bottom.

I have used this product for about 4 years now, and I love it. Be sure to use it as instructed on the bottle (Apply, may take multiple coats. Massage in to the plastic. BUFF OFF be sure to remove the excess and make sure it is evenly applied!). It hasnt run or bled significantly in my experience, and if it does it will come off with a good wash and detail. It lasts for weeks staying glossy, and the renewing properties are MUCH longer lasting. It also protects from oxidation and fading. I love this.

Great Product
July 9, 2009
I used 303 for years on my black plastic, then about two years ago I switched to Adam's In & Out spray. In the last year I started using Mother's Back to Black and have had better results than with either 303 or In & Out. The Back to Black cover sratches and ozidation better, it last longer, and it give a deeper color return. I'm not knocking the other two products; the 303 does a good job, the In & Out is a little better than the 303, but I have found the Back to Black to be the best. You do not have to limit it just to black plastic either, it will work on other colors also. I use it on my wife's Infinity FX35. The bottom of the facade (front and rear bumpers, both sides bottom of doors and rock panel) is black plastic. It holds up better on her daily driver than anything that I have tried. It also, is the only product that I have tried that has successfully covered (hidden) the 3-foot mar on her car's rear bumper. I washed the FX35 just the other days was surprised how well it was holding up and still beading water after over a month in the North Carolina summer sun.

This works really well. Lasts about 4 months. Paints and other treatments look fake on black trim. This really makes a difference while making the trim look stock.

This stuff works great on restoring trim. When applied with a terry cloth and lathered in, it works great and I dont see why they say wipe it off. But this product BLEEDS ALOT. You have to rub your paint very repeatedly to get it out and this can cause paint scratching.

This product required a lot of elbow grease to get worked in to where it would penetrate/remove the white streaks and oxidation. The final result was excellent, however the lifespan was rather limited on the trim for my '95 BMW --- only about 2-3 summer weeks in Colorado weather before it began to get noticeably faded again (car washed every 3-5 days). For others with the E36 chassis; keep it off of your exterior B-pillar trim - it streaks and has inconsistent effects there! Would still recommend, but I'm looking to dyes for a more permanent solution.

Ford Expedition Panels
October 20, 2007
My 2004 Ford Expedition has dark grey side panels. They had faded almost in the pattern of a sunset. This seems to be common as I have seen many of them on the road this way. The body shop offered to paint them for $600 (no guarantee) or replace them for $800. A friend reccomended Back-to-Black. Multiple applications with a soft cloth made them look better, but the "fade" pattern was still there. Then I figured it out. Take a scotch-brite pad and use back-to-black liberally and rub hard on the entire panel, especially on the "faded" areas. Then take a clean cloth and clean the liquid and residue from the panel. Repeat this about three times and your panel will look like new. It took a lot of hard elbow grease but it really did the trick. That "fade" is actually oxidation of the panel, and will rub off with a lot of hard work, and the back-to-black will bring out the true dark color of the panel. Soap and water did not work very well, only the back-to-black. Good luck!

Brings back the faded jeep black fenders like new. Really fantastic. use a lot cause it absorbs like a sponge to bring back the black in the plastic. Just used for the first time, will see how long it lasts in New England.

Requires several coats and a lot of buffing. Still, it's the best product I've found so far. The results weren't spectacular but certainly acceptable.
