I like SEM 39143 Trim Black. I've used it on the lower windshield valence and the rear trim between the lights on my c900 vert. I've also used it on under-hood parts. It has just the right sheen.
People also say mother back to black fades after a month or two.Dont paint it. It'll chip off over time and look hidious. Go to your local auto parts store (autozone) and look for Mothers® Back-to-Black. Its a trim dye to restore your faded trim. Its about 5-7$ for a bottle. I've heard good reviews about this, some here on TSL have re-dyed their trim peices and it came out just like new. I'll do a little research on here for ya and see if i can pull up the thread that has some pictures of people that have done this.
right on, i use mothers on my mirrors and it looks great for about 2/3months.People also say mother back to black fades after a month or two.
You're right, i forgot about Forever Black, everyone seems to rave about that product, i may have to try that instead of Mothers. Either way, its going to do the job for ya, Mothers seems to not last as long tho. Heres a link from when palmer did his 9-3....People also say mother back to black fades after a month or two.
Get something called Forever Black.
Exactly, that is what the Bumper Coating did for me as well. It went on and looked slightly wet at first but as it dried, it matted down and brought back the OEM texture albeit dark and satin looking.the dyes are a waste of money, ive done multiple pieces with duplicolor trim paint, which is different from the bumper coating i believe.
turns out very good and replaces a little of the lost texture.
Nope, there are certain cars that have different colored plastic trim by design, but these cars are not. They are supposed to be near black as new.i thought that the trim pieces were supposed to be gray...
