mio I've been very pleased with Poorboy's Trim Restorer.

christian900se 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).

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

i don't know about the viggen bumper top however.

perkj 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:

k1llsh0rty i paint matched mine..... it looks soooo much better... well and a little bit of laziness played into that as well!

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.
