    Have you tried cleaning the trim once in awhile with some APC and then applying ultimate black? I have found that ultimate black last a little longer when the surface is cleaned and prepped.

    If that's the ONLY black plastic trim on your car, then this may not be the best choice for you. Even so, it certainly can be used on those pieces, but you're very best bet regarding application would be to mask off the area surrounding pretty thoroughly. You can pick up plastic sheeting in a roll that has masking tape pre-applied to an edge: roll it out, stick along the edge, then unfold the masking material and you're good to go. This is the sort of masking system 3M uses with their Paint Defender spray on clear bra and it works great. Unfolded, the masking plastic is usually about 3' wide, which should be more than sufficient for masking against overspray with this product. Application of the masking on both sides of the trim would probably take a couple minutes at most.

    We do not recommend spraying onto a cloth and then applying to the surface - it really needs to be spray delivered.

    Thanks for the reply. My 2nd question didn't get answered though. Would this be safe for running boards? Sometimes products like this leave it somewhat slippery. Have you tried it out on running boards?

    I have these long black rubber strips on my pearl white car roof also. I agree with this method and it works just as you say. The UB lotion lays down better and seems to last a little longer after a good APC cleaning.

    This product seems like it would also be great to use on hoses during an engine bay detail

    No, it does not leave a slippery finish. In fact, it dries totally dry to the touch in a few minutes. No reason at all to not use it on running boards.

    Re: Ultimate Black Plastic Restorer

    I think this will be a great product and will be waiting to pick up a can or two myself. Since I'm really interested in this product, I have a couple questions about the self leveling and the effect of drying to the touch coming from an aerosol and to hydrate weathered plastic back to new or like new appearance.

    1) Does it have Material Saturation Ability?
    2) Will it work equally well on colored plastic's?
    3) What Flavor or I mean what smell does it offer, if any since's it's coming from an aerosol?
    Thanks...

    This could just be the product I've been waiting for to spray on/walk away on grilles and other tight areas.

    I'm keen to read some reviews (Guz, I'm looking at you!)

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    You're calling me out huh . I'll be sure to write one since I am curious about this product as well. Especially in comparing it to D4510.
