Faded exterior black trim

Who has the best luck with the longest lasting look for all the
blackish grey trim on the outside of the Commander?

I've tried a few things without luck. Mine stays in the garage
mainly so it's not real bad. The top of the rear bumper
and the mirros for example.

I would love to have them professionally painted to match the
jeeps paint but it seems something like armor all would work
between washes. Any idea's. It's a waist to put something on
them if it's dry and looking as if it's not been done in a day or
two.

I would guess a cooking oil like Pam would do the trick for a
while but would collect dust quick and be slick for the bumper
or running boards.

Any ideas?

I use Stoner Trim Shine. Just don't breathe to deeply when applying!

Is that why they call it "Stoner"?

The stoner sounds about right...

I use Meguires for wax and quick detailer, I'll see
which of these three I can find locally.


Thanks for the info.
