    cerakote trim restorer, impressive?

    On the surface from watching a couple of vids. from Wilson and Apex, I am impressed that this trim restorer will last quite a while - they say 200 washes. I don`t have anything in my collection that will last through a few washes let alone more than 100. This would save anyone time having to re-dress/recoat black trim.
    Interested what every one who any experience with this product.

    Re: cerakote trim restorer, impressive?

    I have experience with this product, I have been quite impressed with it, too. Restored the trim on my mother`s RX350 with this product, it has been on the trim since December. Very hydrophobic, gives the trim a rich color. The only downside is prep work and the smell of the actual product. I recommend applying the product in a very well ventilated environment, if you don`t have a respirator that protects against vapors. I used six out of ten wipes on a 2010 RX350, applied to all exterior black trim, and to the trim in between the doors and the body, so you can have a reference of how far the product will work for you. Regarding prep work, I cleaned ALL the trim with a magic eraser and Goof Off Household Heavy Duty Spot Remover and Degreaser.


    ************Edit: After cleaning the trim with the Goof Off product, I did do an IP wipe before coating installation.

    Brian liked it, the durability`s 2 years which if truthful is still great. But I don`t know if even the most Autopian detailer here washes their car 200 times in 2 years. IMHO they should just say 2 years on the box, that`s impressive as hell. 200 washes for the average person`s like 4-8 years lol.
