    Thanks for the offer. Poorboys trim restorer and PERL are my normal go it`s but nothing lasts on my truck, so that`s why I`m testing these coatings now.

    Have you tried Solution Finish with DLux as a topper? Works great for me.

    Had Solution Finish before, works fine for some time, but as noted above, really needs a topper of a coating to last. Even Opti-Coar on top of SF did not last as long as I wanted on the rear bumper area on my SUV. Will give the new stuff a shot and see if it darkens as well as my reference (Meg`s Hyper Dressing still gives the best look in my opinion). Meg`s does not last, but the richness of black has not been seen with anything else.

    I applied solution finish and topped it with uttg+ approximately 3 months ago and have not noticed any degradation of the trim. Data point of one.

    Dang. Mine after looked like your before. I think I will have to spray these with the wurth satin black trim paint I bought to bring them back

    Black bond darkened it more than dlux but I used dlux on rest as I plan on repainting it anyways now

    Re: Polish Angel: Bond, Black Bond: initial thoughts and observations, and a longevity test

    We can call it 2 months...

    Washed truck yesterday
    Trim had water spots
    Washed with 2bm and mckees si02 wash.
    Water spots on trim are gone

    Dew/mist from overnight caused water to sit
    I wiped it off on my lunch break with a DMT and it was spotted again. Hopefully it washes off again it but might be a month until I bucket wash it again.

    The previous spots had to have been there almost a month.

    Observations: previous personal best was 6 days with multiple consecutive treatments of other trim products on this windshield plastic area.

    I bought this truck used and I never really properly cared for the plastic after I bought it.

    Quite frankly of black bond lasts until summer on this trim I`ll be happy. It`s at that point to where I should replace it or spray it. I don`t think It was made for this badly faded trim but so far so good. Seems to be fading a little bit around some areas but compared to what it was originally it`s still much better.

    It`s possible I should have done multiple treatments since the plastic was so bad but I did use a lot already on this front piece.

    Side note I`ve had good results with this on the rear plastic trim around the tail lights on my challenger as well since application.

    The running boards are doing well and side mirrors too.

    Overall all these 2006 130k mile+ pieces are still much better looking than it started.

    I highly doubt it lasts two years, and I might not even have the truck two more years but like I said if it lasts until summer and I can apply again I think I`m ok with that.

    I`ll take some pics in the sun tomorrow and show the water spots. Perhaps they will come off with a qd or rw.
