    Quick update. The coating is holding up well 55 days after the initial application on the plastic cowl on my car. It's survived rain and washes.

    I have my brothers car for the next 2 weeks as he is on vacation. Ended up using this on the grilles of his car.

    Here's a couple before shots. They were looking pretty sad. Took them off the car to not worry about overspray. 2 screws and these are out so that's not bad.





    After





    Here's one of one grille done and the other not.



    Ultimate black darkened these up really good.



    Back on the car looking good.

    Looks like you had great results on that grill.^

    Hope you don't mind if I add my results/quik review to your thread?

    I applied the new UB Trim Restorer Aerosol to the trim of the 04' Tacoma just over 6 weeks ago now...

    This is how it looked just prior to taping off and applying it.



    This is how it looked today.
    Note: Front wheel trim was done with UB Spray.
    Rear wheel trim was done with UB Gel.
    Same day, 6 weeks ago. See the difference?



    [Btw, I polished the truck with a fresh coat of D151 today. But thx to white paint, it doesn't serve the proper justice through these pictures. Lol]


    My following thoughts on this product are solely based on just 1 experience so far, but as far as those perticular trim pieces around the tires, I found that I wasn't quite able to get the ideal results I was hoping for.

    It took multiple applications for the trim to darken to the level I usually get from just 1 application D4510 and even UB Gel. And when it finally reached the level of darkness I was looking for, I had applied it so many times that it was running in some areas.. It dries fast enough, which is a good thing, but once it dried it also seemed to fade a bit, which lead to more spraying, and more chance of the product running.

    Here's a closer view. You can see how I wasn't able to get it to level out.



    Meanwhile, UB Gel was the usual breeze to apply. A couple of passes and it was level as can be. And while it's not as black as it was 6wks. ago, IMO it's aging quite gracefully.



    Final thoughts: The UB Spray seemed to work better with the rest of the trim on the truck. But for some reason it just wouldn't agree to play nice with those wheel pieces.. And yes I prepped all the trim meticulously with D101.

    Could just be a funky match between the product and that perticular surface. I've found some trim [i.e. Running boards on a Honda Pilot] that would seem to soak up UB Gel and dry up within a day.. I'm interested to try it on a different vehicle, because I still find it's promised longevity appealing.

    Thx 4 reading..

    Quick follow up. Gave the car a 2 bucket wash today instead of a rinseless and I am happy to report back that ultimate black is still on the front cowl. It's been on that piece for 3 1/2 months. Still looks like day one. Beading and sheeting is good. Other than the tough time I had when initially applying it in this area (overspray on glass), it's doing very well.

    Thanks for the review and follow up Michael.

    Those front grilles look great. That's the same application I want to use the UB for if/when I get it. I'll definitely take them of first!

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.

    If I was going to the trouble of removing the trim from the car I'd go for this: http://www.semproducts.com/refinish-trim-paints , otherwise that looks like a nice product.

    That's a nice product. Well the good thing is I didn't have to remove the cowl piece. The grilles is 2 screws. Took longer to prep than to remove and reinstall. I didn't want overspray like I had in the glass on the cowl.

    My number 1 recommendation is to mask the area prior to using it.
