Default Make grey plastic look like new!

Mothers makes a product called back to black and it works wonders. I was skeptical at first, but after my buddy and I using it on all the black plastic on our trucks, I will stand by this product. The first image is my rear bumper before application and the second photo is after. I also took another picture about 1 hour after application and I can say it looks just as good when it dries. Yes, I know I forgot to do my tailgate handle before this picture.

I have used tons of different "Makes the trim black again" dressing products.

The ONE product I have found that is dark black and STAYS black is:

Dry Shine Black Trim Restore Treatment

This bumper was done over a year ago!

I used BTB on my bed rails a while back. They looked good for a while but after driving on gravel roads they became brown and would not come clean for the longest time.

Dry Shine Black Trim Restore Treatment is a tried and true product for me.
Glad I can bring things to the table. I like quality products from small local folks.
Let me know what you think when you give it a try. This stuff wears like iron!!!
I'll be glad to give you pointers before you use it. It can be a bit finicky to apply.
It's not a dressing. Think of it like painting a black, hard, dry coating on your trim.
