    Mothers back to black works pretty well. I have always found a shot of black pray laquer works wonders on faded black parts, even plastic trim....

    I usually just paint mine; using flat black it looks great (people don't know it's not factory until I tell them) and lasts a couple of years if you prep your surface right.

    I tried some Megiuars plastic restorer stuff on the tupperware one time, and it looked good until the next rain. :( Now I just mask off and paint--plastic or metal.

    I just had some body work done after a deer ran into the side of my Explorer; I had to find a door in a junkyard; it's got some faded black paint on the trim by the window, so I'll have to paint that soon to match the other side.

    I have used Forever Black on the trim on two ten yr. old cars and it does everything it says it will. Two coats are usually best. Have an old rag to wipe off any you get on the paint. Really good stuff.......

    So how was your experience with this product?


    Does it only work on black moldings?
