The trim on my jeep is slowly starting to gray and lose its shine. I've used Tire foam on some of it, Tire Wet on others but I'm looking for a good NON-Greesy shine. What do you guys use to keep the trim black and shiney?:popcorn:Thanks for the info in advance. Matt

Let me know when you find out, my 08 is almost ash white now. No matter what I put on it only lasts a day or two. I am seriously considering rhino coat.

+1 for black wow, it will do wonders.

The thing is, your plastic needs as much if not more attention then your paint. You need to keep up on conditioning it, I do it every time i wash because i dont want it to fade. It needs moisturizing and SPF protection. Use black wow to restore it then use this, Its not glossy and shinny, it makes it look clean and "conditioned"

Extreme V.R.P Dressing

Also part of your problem is using tire products on plastic, Most are not developed to do both. Because more then likely you used over the counter tire wet you dryed your plastics out expediting the discoloration.

Whatever you guys use on your fenders, do you also use this on your hard top or soft top? I just picked up some mothers back to black to put on my fenders and was wondering if it's also good to put on the hard top.

Mother's "Back to Black" works pretty well too.

+2 for Black Wow
A little bottle of that stuff lasts a long time.
I'll give the Extreme V.R.P a shot.
303 provides good uv protection when it's on there but it seems to wash off so fast.

On my TJ I used to use the stuff for patio furniture. I think that Rustolium made it...or Krylon. Can't remember, but I got it at Lowes in the patio furniture section. Sprayed it on...that was it. Never had to mess with it again.

I've used back to black several times, it doesn't last long on mine but its probably older and in worse shape than most in here, I can't afford to be in a some new color waiting room thread, still driving the 08
