    Dose any know what you can put on the body molding they fad and look bad. i have used quite a few products but nothing works. The only product that seems to last for a month or 2 is tire dressing.

    If you are refering to the greyish looking molding that runs along the bottom of the vehicle then I recommend painting them. Some have done it on this forum and had great results, I can contest that I did it also and has turned out very well. I painted them with Krylon Fusion Black paint back in March of this year and the paint is still holding strong.

    Meguiar's Ultimate Black doesnt look to bad but will it hold?

    ^^^that's what I use with good results...though I only have mirrors and back step/ door handles/roof rack, mine is still pretty black like new compared to that (its faded) it is easier long term to just paint

    Make sure if you paint it you take the time to sand it smooth before painting will look so much better..

    Lookin at it my mirrors look black like yours..
    imo black cars look best all black or almost...
