The permanent answer to sun-faded bumpers and trim moldings. Forever Black restores a dark, black, finish on sun-faded bumpers and physique moldings. This is not a cosmetic dressing. It's an quick-to-use permanent dye. It permanently colors black plastic, rubber and vinyl with the exact same polymers that the manufacturers use. It is not a silicone dressing - silicone goods will make plastic, vinyl and rubber seem to have regained their color but the modify is temporary. Plus, silicone oils have been recognized to dry out the applied areas creating a bigger difficulty. Silicone also tends to leave a greasy residue even soon after buffing.
- four oz. of Forever Black Cleaner Concentrate
- four oz. of Forever Black dye
- Gives coverage on an typical of four-6 vehicles.
- No masking or tape required considering the fact that the Bumper Trim Reconditioner will only adhere to porous plastic, rubber, and vinyl.
I own a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the bumpers and trim had faded to a shade of gray that was almost white. Although it took two bottles of the Forever Black and alot of time/effort to restore the plastic, by the time I had finished it looked new again. Actually, I'm not sure it was that black when I bought it 8 years ago. I waited 4 months before writing this review to see how long it would last before washing off and it hasn't yet. I haven't applied any other products during this period and it actually looks as shiny and black as it did the day I put it on. This product is like a miracle cure for tired, old cars.
This is an amazing product. I have a 2004 Volvo XC70 whose black bumper and other trim had faded to grey pretty badly. (I am sure many readers have seen Volvo's with trim that has faded really badly.) I used to treat the trim with Mother's Back to Black and it made the trim look great....until it rained, which caused the product to run and cause streaks in the trim...making it look even worse than before I even treated it.
The important factors in using Forever Black are preparation and patience. Preparation: The product comes packaged with a cleanser and an applicator bottle. I took my time and cleansed my trim three times, very well, with the cleanser. Then carefully I dried it. Patience: Once I started to apply the dye, the trim absorbed it like a sponge. I was concerned at first because of the rate at which the product was being absorbed; I was afraid I did not have enough product to do the job. Well, I persevered and after about 6 full applications on all of the black trim, it looked better than brand new. Plus, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the bottle of product was still about half full!
Even now, several months (and several rainfalls) later, the trim still looks better than it did when the car was new. I am in love with this product, and whenever I am out driving the car, I love the puzzled looks I get from others (especially other XC70 owners) because my car blows theirs away with its good looks. I am waiting for someone to approach me one day and ask, "What in the world did you do?"
Great job, Forever Black! You have an excellent product here. Don't stop making it
