I used this on the headliner trim molding and the b-pillar trim molding in a 1986 chevy camaro. The plastic was only moderately faded (i.e., still looked black, not gray or nearly white). I wiped each piece with 91% rubbing alcohol to make sure it was clean. Then used the Solution Finish on each piece. It really is fool-proof as they describe. I wiped it on with a microfiber towel. A little does cover quite a bit more than I was expecting. Buffed it off with another mf towel after a 2-minute wait. Since the headliner trim molding was more faded than the b-pillar it was more noticeable how well it restored the finish. Very impressed so far. Interested to see how long it lasts. If it doesn't start to fade until at least 8 months or more as described, it's worth it. Also, it doesn't have a strong or offensive odor and it dries quickly. The only con (which is extremely minor) would be that it dries quickly on the towel I used. But not too noticeable after immediately washing/scrubbing it with dishwashing liquid (Dawn brand), then later with the laundry.

This stuff is a miracle in a bottle! I used on a couple of very sun abused vehicles and the trim came out looking like new and it has lasted. I highly recommend it!

Absolutely amazing product. Out of all the products I've tried this is the cream of the crop. Lasts months not weeks.

Used this on my brothers 97 BMW. This is really good stuff. Better than any thing else I've tried. Can't use it on my 535i sport because there is no rubber trim. Yes the 1 oz. goes a long long way. I'm getting the big bottle for the few vehicles I do for a little extra cash. Well worth it. Bringing faded plastic and rubber back is sure to produce some smiles.

It's been about a week since I applied this to my 2004 Subaru Forester. We have had 3 heavy thunderstorms and this product still looks good! No streaking or running. I have used plenty of other products ie. Back to Black and Black Again to name just two, and while they actually produce a deeper black during the application, they both fade quickly and streak when rained upon. So far, this is by far the best trim enhancer I have ever used, and the most expensive, but truly, a little goes a long way! I'll bet I could re-apply this product 10 - 15 times before using up the small bottle. Follow the instructions and use IPA to clean the trim before applying. I tried it both ways and it does make a difference. They also suggest buffing it with a paper towel after applying. I tried that too, and found no real difference, so I saved myself the time and skipped this optional step. Don't let the price scare you away. And the best price I found anywhere was from Detailed Image.

I had to park my car in a valet parking garage of course when I got home I noticed the back bumper had a wall rash and it freaked me out so I used a heat gun to level the trim then I used the trim restorer and I'm amazed that it looks great like it never happened .

Works good. Make sure trim is fully dried then apply and let sit for a while, then come back and wipe with clean cloth.

I was a little disappointed with this product. I'm using it on weathered trim and it leaves a lot of streaks. You need to make sure to wipe it off so it wont look gooie. I don't think it works as advertised. The overall look is just OK for me. They made it sound as if the plastic absorbed the stain and it wasn't really a stain, etc. etc. The product does go a long way, but I'll finish it and find something else.

The product works but there is a reason it's not sold to the mass/general public. You have to follow the directions. Apply it evenly then remove access with micro fiber cloth. Then repeat the application til desired look is achieved. Do not soak the area and allow it to sit or run because it will darken unevenly.

This solution streaked and became unattractive after overnight dew. Visible streaks ..... Very unattractive.

Use it very regularly. Much better than OTC products. Have not compared it to a dedicated ceramic coating like DLUX yet though.

How I apply it, and find that it works best is to clean the trim first with APC and then IPA/Eraser then take the bottle, and dip it against a foam applicator brush just to get a little bit on it, and then I rub the brush over the trim. I give it a few seconds to soak in, then I come back with a MF towel that I am okay with soiling and mop up and excess. I find that over loading the applicator actually works worse so less is more in this aspect.

Great product. works great on trim running boards. Hard plastic that could fade brings it back to life . The only part of the car where it hasn't worked for me is the rubber parts, like the rubber seal that goes around the windows. It just does not hold up on this area. But other than that, it's great. Oh by the way a little goes a long way, so start with the small bottle and then move up to the bigger one.

Used it on my 2007 Tundra rear bumper, door handles, and mud flaps. Restored all surfaces to like new condition. The one caveat is to follow directions and read other reviews. I initially used a little too much and did not wipe all the excess off which left some areas a little tacky. After making this mistake the other surfaces came out perfect. I have washed the vehicle since applying it and still looks very good. I can easily repeat the treatment with the one ounce bottle that I initially purchased. If this product lasts 6-9 months I will be very satisfied.

This is quite simply THE near permanent solution! After three months I reapplied to a spot and looks the same compared to my before and after photo I took with a separation between treated and untreated. Forget the peanut butter and the other OTC oil based crud on the market. Drop the coin and just do it. You'll be impressed. And this little bottle goes a loooooong way. Don't let that sway you.

Definitely wear gloves, use a small cotton cloth and apply just a small amount. The results are amazing. My 2007 Ford Ranger, the door jams, mirrors and bumpers looks pretty close as when it came from the factory.

2006 Dodge RAM has trim that looks new again. Doesn't seem like it is going to last more than a month or three, but easy enough to apply and a little will go a long way if you apply nickel sized spot on your cloth or pad and work it in. Cleans off painted panels easily enough when wet. I also applied to e-coated wiper arms... Made them look good again, too. Definitely worth the money. A bit messy - a lot like copier toner in a liquid base (probably essentially what it really is!). Does not look shiney or overdone at all. Very "factory" looking. If you want to clean one up to sell or are one who keeps clean and waxed vehicles... This is what you need. Will buy again.

Have used this product on two vehicles. A 2015 Kia Soul and a 2004 Chevy Avalanche( with the side molding). I didn't use a micro foam pad, but a regular wax application pad. I work it in the trim and it does very well. The truck looks like it came off the showroom floor. I have enough left in the bottle to probably do both vehicles a couple of times. I work it into the trim and buff out the excess. Doing it this way, it doesn't run( I don't soak the pad, about a size of a nickel). Hasn't rain here yet, waiting to see if it stays on and keeps it shine. This product is a lot better than some I've tried in the past, even darkens where the wax has built up. So far, this product does what it says it will do. If it last in rainstorms or car washes, I will definitely this product again!

The product did cover two cars and I still have some left. But the next day, there were streaks. As the days turned into a week more streaks. I almost bought this item as stocking stuffers, but am glad I waited to see the end results.

Disappointed

Product works as stated. I did an '01 Ford F250 Extended cab and it brought the trim and mirrors back to original looking condition.
Do not know how long the product will last as I only did it about 3 weeks ago. So far so good after multiple heavy rain storms.
I found that using the product very sparingly and rubbing it in well worked best and did not require any final buffing and had no runs.

good product. does what it claims but make sure you buff excess off as it will run down and stain paint.

This is a good alternative when Aerospace 303 or similar dressings are not working. It has solvents and black dye, so it gets the job done by brute force. For the price that Detailed Image sells this product, it's a good deal.
