    The exterior trim on my 2003 Trailblazer was very faded(white, chalky look). The first time I bought Mothers Back to Black I applied a thick layer on the trim and buffed it after a few minutes. In the rain it would wash off and leave an oily residue on the paint. I then applied according to the instructions. I applied several thin coats and gave me excellent results. I applied it a month ago and it hasn't washed off with the rain. Another excellent product from Mothers.

    I purchased this product only because it's Mothers Brand, and most of their products are exceptional as far as consumer products are concerned.
    I was surprised the paste is white, not black, which made me rightfully skeptical of its ability to restore color(Back to Black...) to aged trim. The paste is basically concetrated-gel-like ArmorAll. I'm sure with periodic use it will prevent new trim from aging and keep it lustrous, however it doesnt do anything for 10 year old trim thats lost its shine - best to use Tire Shine instead.
    This product works well on door seals and weather stripping but not as well as the BMW black weather stripping conditioner.

    Comments about Mothers Back-to-Black Trim Care:

    A good product that touches up trim well. In the the summertime, my old cavalier's trim fades pretty pad. After I work this stuff into it, it shines like new. Make sure not to get it on the paint though. It streaks horribly and you will need to polish it out in order for it not to be REALLY visible.

          This product works well. I have no problems with it. For the price it is worth it, but a good Synth. Wax like Turtle Wax Ice yealds better results for me.

            Comments about Mothers Back-to-Black Trim Care:

            This has to be the worst product I have ever seen. I used the Mothers wax on my black truck the other day stood there with pride after about 2 hours of waxing and buffing by hand. However, when I went to use the mothers back to black, it things changed. DO NOT GET IT ON YOUR PAINT!! It does nothing but streak and turn that beautiful wax job into popo (system won't let me use what I want to). I must have buffed about 10 times before I could get it to look decent. At first, your black plastic looks good. But once it sets in, it doesn't look any different then before and after a day or 2, begins to spot and look even worse then it did before.

                        This product is intended for use on plastic, vinyl and rubber surfaces that are unpainted. If your decal is from the factory and has a clear coat of paint over it, this product is not for you.
                        If however the decal sits on top of the paint, this would be ideal for restoring brilliance to it.
