Product Review: Gyeon Trim Q2

by

I must admit that I have a trim coating fetish, and have tried many different brands.  I truly enjoy restoring trim to a nice deep black finish almost as much as I enjoy doing paint correction work on a severely neglected car.  Properly dressed trim is kind of like the icing on the cake when detailing a car.  So when Detailed Image picked up the Gyeon line I knew I had to give Trim Q2 a try.  I just happened to be working on a 2012 Honda Civic Si with a few trim pieces that needed some attention.  As with many cars on the road today, after a few years the wiper cowls and trim pieces that are highly exposed to constant sun had begun to fade.

Gyeon does a very nice job of packaging their products and include everything you need to complete the task.  Here is some info directly from the label of the product.

From The Label

Trim Q2

  • Permanent trim restorer.
  • Hydrophobic coating for all types of plastic.
  • High Self-Cleaning abilities.
  • Prevents from oxidation.
  • The coating is resistant to any chemicals from pH 2 up to 11.
  • Recommended hand & skin protection.
  • Work in a ventilated area.
  • Keep in a dark, dry & cool place.

Included with the kit is a foam applicator block, a few suede applicators, a dropper, 30 ml bottle of the trim coating and a small instruction book (not shown in the above picture) as a guide for application of all their products.

Here is the before photo of the wiper cowl, which you can see is quite faded.  As with any trim coating, the first thing you want to do is thoroughly clean the surface.  I like to use Nextzett Plastik Reiniger Plastic Deep Cleaner, however an all purpose cleaner (APC) would work just fine.

With a clean dry surface, you are ready to begin application of the coating.  Using the dropper supplied with the kit, apply a few drops of the applicator pad and you’re ready to apply.  This product has a pretty long work time.  You will instantly see the difference in color, restoring the trim to a nice deep rich black color.

A closer view of the before and after finish on the cowl.  I like to use the Foam Cleaning Swabs for applying the coating in the tighter areas, such as the sections on the front of the wiper cowl.

The finished product speaks for itself.   Gyeon Trim took this faded cowl, returning it to a like new finish that will remain for months if not years to come.

Here are a few photos outside once the vehicle was finished.  The deep, dark finish of the trim is a great contrast to the glowing red finish on this Si.

    great article! I have looked at and used a few restorers unsuccessfully. well, they all work, but for short periods. do you think this product could be used for underchassis/frame cleanups and under engine detailing (the jewel box). thanks!

    • Kevin George Kevin George says:

      Thanks Tim, I am not sure how this product will hold up for underchassis/frame use as it is really not its intended use. I am sure it would hold up pretty well on a vehicle that is a fair weather car. I don’t see any reason it wouldn’t work on plastic pieces under the hood also.

    Grat article!
    Is the buffing required after apllication?

    • Kevin George Kevin George says:

      Thanks Marko, buffing / wiping is not always required after application. If you apply the product pretty evenly then you will likely not have to level or wipe the area. If you have some high spots from the application then you will need to wipe. A small amount goes a long way with many of the trim coatings.

    Another product to look at and try. Thanks, Kevin!

    Can this be used on a tonneau cover?
    I have an undercover hard shell tonneau cover.
