Test Surface - Faded Trim On A Nissan Frontier. As you can see in this 50/50 shot, the trim is faded in some places it's starting to turn a whitish hue.

Step 1: First clean the surface to be treated. Happy to say Andre washed the truck for us. Thank you Andre! 

Step 2: Using a clean microfiber applicator pad or towel, apply the product to the surface and work it into the surface.

Step 3: After application, buff off any excess with a clean dry microfiber towel.

The plastic is still in good shape but is dull and lifeless, it really needs some attention.

But once the trim has been treated with Pinnacle Onyx Trim Restorer, you can see the trim has been completely revived!

Because this is basically a dye, you should apply a dressing or a sealant over the top to protect the now restored black finish. Here's the key though - YOU MUST FIRST DO A GREAT JOB OF CLEANING THE PLASTIC TRIM.

This is true for ANY plastic trim dye, dressing or sealant. It's key because plastic is not super absorbent I the first place so it's important to first get it clean so the pigment has the best chance of getting INTO the plastic with out dirt, road film or previously applied dressings getting in the way.

Also - be sure to wear protective gloves and immediately wipe any excess off nearby paint, plastic or glass.
