Viggen 9-3 trim/bumper tops

What can I use that to give a "new" look to these plastic trim pieces. Any recommendations from all the detailers out there.

Viggen bumper tops and side trim are supposed to be gray, not black. its actually a textured paint that doesn't fade

I had tried Forever black on the Viggen about a year ago.....pic below:


While it looked good, the Forever black flaked a lot being applied to a painted surface vs. a plastic surface and trying to keep up with the flaking was a losing battle.

I've sense removed all (what a bitch that was) and its back to the normal gray

To get them to remain black, you'd need to paint them black with this:

If its paint, then a wax should work.

I use a silicone spray lubricant on mine. I can't remember which brand is in my garage right now... maybe Liquid Wrench. It looks pretty good, but it doesn't last forever.

turtle wax ICE wax works on the black plastic trim for about 3-4 days not ideal, but works.

I agree with Paul, thats what I use and there is nothing better. All trim protectants and shines will not last a particularly long time regardless of the manufacturer claims (trust me, Ive tried them all).

I purchased it from Autogeek (http://www.autogeek.net/pbtr16.html) but it's available from countless online retailers. Simply do a search and compare prices.
