HOW TO DO A CAR PAINT RESTORATION ON A FADED TRIM

Over time, your pride and joy can look a little worse for wear. Long exposure to UV rays can cause your exterior plastic and rubber trim to lose its vibrant appearance and look faded and dull. Luckily, it’s easy to restore those surfaces with a Trim Restoration product formulated to renew the colour and gleam, while also adding a protective layer to prevent further dulling for long-lasting shine.

RESTORE FADED TRIM ON OLDER OR WEATHERED CARS

Step 1:

Step 2:

  • Use a microfibre towel or foam applicator to apply our Black in a Flash Trim and Tyre Wax gel onto the trim.
  • Working in a side-to-side, overlapping motion, spread the product evenly to the entire trim surface.
  • Wait about 10 minutes for the product to dry, to avoid dripping or streaking. If you have chosen to use the aerosol spray instead, you can spray directly onto the trim and wait only 1 minute to dry.
  • Important to note: These products are formulated solely for your vehicle’s rubber and plastic trim, not for the paint.

Step 3:

  • You can safely add 2 to 3 extra layers if you wish. Doing so will add additional protection and further darken the trim back to its former vibrant black appearance.
  • If you wish to further darken the colour on your black trim to its former vibrance, you can safely add 2 to 3 extra layers, while also adding even more protection.
  • We recommend reapplying Black in a Flash on a seasonal schedule, as it will last for several months.

SHINE AND PROTECT TRIM ON NEWER CARS

Step 1:

  • Once a month, give your exterior plastic and rubber trim a fresh layer of protection from UV rays and the elements with our Tyre and Bumper Gel. This formula also renews the brightness and shine.

Step 2:

  • Spread the gel evenly around the surface after direct application with a microfibre towel.

Step 3:

  • Add additional layers to increase the amount of brightness and shine.
