    Default pillar molding trim faded

    Anyone know of what i should use on door moldings to bring them back to new.

    Tried a few products, but not coming up as i'd like. The rear door has faded a bit more than the front, as per pic.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately its a job that will have to be done again and again with product application unless you cover them with something

    Have you thought about getting irmscher pillar trim kit, they are a bit like hens teeth but you might get lucky (got mine for £30) or a few on here have vinyl wrapped.

    good luck mate

    Hey, I'm having the same problem with mine, tried everything and contemplating a matt black spray job to ensure blackness. Should look ok on my car, its Black Sapphire.

    Right, smooth peanut butter. Will nip to shop and post back in a bit. How long do I leave it on. And what way would I apply it.

    well peanut butter didn't seem to work. Kinda made a small bit of a difference.

    Off to halfords for the 3 for 2 range. Will try that suff you suggested Jezzy.

    Thanks.

    Meguiars do a black trim detailer that works very well. Maybe time for some nice carbon fibre trim to cover it?

    I have used gtechniq c4 with great succes on my old mk4 astra. It brings the trims back to colour and last a very long time. It's a bit expensive but you only have to apply it once a year or even less. Make sure before you use it that you clean the pillars very good.
