    Default How to get the black trim back to black

    Whats the best products for getting the bumper trim etc on the bottom of the front bumper back to black as mine has gone a bit faded/gray and looks ****e. Ive tried the autoglym bumper trim stuff and that does not work but does work on the rest althought they do not look faded.

    any ideas

    Yep smooth peanut butter works a treat to get it back to what it should be then just use your normal stuff after that!

    In a thread a few months back someone had this recommendation from a detailing forum http://gtechniq.com/shop/3s-for-cars...trim-restorer/

    Never tried it but was thinking about buying some this summer and giving it a go on everything!

    be aware this product contains nuts so could cause an allergic reaction

    Tried the peanut butter and it does work. Just make sure its smooth and not crunchy! I also find the AG bumper care (snot green) works well.

    I was given some mequiars natural shine vinyl and rubber sealant in a sample satchet to try recently, I used it a couple of weeks ago and i am quitely impressed with it just waiting to see how well it stands upto the present weather conditions before sticking my hand in my pocket for a bottle but its only £7 or £8 anyway
