    We aren't 100% clear what products you're talking about here. Did you apply our Ultimate Black to the exterior trim and now you're asking if you should apply our Ultimate Protectant? If so, they're basically the same product but in two different packing formats. People seem to really like a spray product (Ultimate Protectant) for interior use and a lotion product (Ultimate Black) for exterior trim. As crazy as it sounds, the consuming public has this so set in their heads that they will rarely even consider a lotion type product for interior use, no matter how good it might be.

    So, the very short answer to your question is: No. Once you've applied Ultimate Black to the exterior trim, you're done.

    so then ultimate black has its own protective element built in to make the new finish last...
    so when i do vehilces that require no "restoration" to the trim, jus use the protectant to protect what is there alrady?

    You can use something like Ult. Quick Wax to go over everything after washing, and that may add some extra life.

    And yeah, can use the same product for new trim, just may not need to apply as heavy, or extra coats, etc.
