    Read many reviews on the multiple products available on the market for restoring grey/chalkie/uv bleached plastic and decided to give this one a shot. Saturday, I used this on my ’09 Wrangler Unlimited which has TONS of plastic, and let me tell you… it did a phenominal job. I used it on the hood latches, bumbers, fenders, side steps, window and door gasgets, and wiper arms. I have not applied any sort of protectant to the plastic on my jeep since I bought it in March of ’09 and this product made my jeep look BRAND NEW. It’s very simple to apply, just get a terry cloth towel and wipe it on. No buffing or anything required. I put it on in full sunlight on warm, clean plastic with great results. No white residue ANYWHERE which is very impressive! Again, I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to restore faded automotive plastic!

    Works so much better than the Armor All which needed to be reapplied every month. I put this on in the beginning of the summer and now that summer is over, my truck looks just like the first day.

    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!!

    A truly great product w/ a terrible applicator – here’s a tip, November 10, 2009
    By 

    This review is from: Forever Black Bumper & Trim Dye Kit (Automotive)
    Everything people say about how well this product works is true. It’s nothing short of amazing.

    The person who gave it 1 star and mentioned the problems with the applicator is correct – that can happen.

    So, the best way I have found to use this product (I’ve done 3 trucks) is to pour the dye into a disposable plastic container and use a cheap disposable foam paint applicator. Works like a charm plus you can use the foam brush that best suits the area you are dying. Makes it easier, cleaner and faster than using the built in foam dabber especially for small trim, corners, tight areas, etc.

    I do something similar with tire dressing like Black Magic Tire wet. I pour it into a cup and use a paint brush to apply it.

    Forever Black Review From A Pro Detailer, December 21, 2012
    By

    This review is from: Forever Black Bumper & Trim Dye Kit (Automotive)
    I use this stuff quite a bit in my mobile detailing business. The results you’ll get is all about A.) how discolored the area to be treated is, B.) The amount of discoloration variation on the area treated C.) the prep. work, and. D.) Realistic expectations if A. and B. are ‘fairly bad’ to ‘OMG that looks awful and I can’t stand it anymore.’

    To be frank, the cleaner included isn’t so great. Especially if there is relatively heavy wax/silicone/sealant build up on the area to be treated. My recommendation would be to first use the provided cleaner as directed; then, after rinsing and allowing to dry, use Griot’s Garage 11071 Rubber Prep – 16 oz. as directed. THEN (bear with me) clean again with the cleaner provided by Forever Black. Then, and in my opinion only then, will you have a properly prepped surface to apply the Forever Black dye.

    To be frank, if there is a circumstance in which the Forever Black dye can only be applied once (one layer) with satisfactory results (even after all of the above prep work) I’ve just never run into it. For one, the applicator is overly porous foam: foam holds air: air makes bubbles: bubbles make imperfections in the application. Second, you’ve got to have next to perfect/new trim to start with for this product to not streak…and even then it streaks a bit. In the end, severely weathered trim will need about 6 or 7 passes for the people who are willing to buy this stuff to be happy.

    Even though I use Forever Black quite a bit, I’m only giving it three stars for the following reasons:
    1.) The cleaner provided… is not good.
    2.) Forever Black (the company) absolutely must know that the applicator is sub-optimal.
    3.) Unless your car is new or next to new, there is no way at all, not even close, no chance, that one bottle of dye treats 4 – 6 cars. In fact, you will be lucky to get all of the rubber, plastic and vinyl all the way around a single mid-sized sedan with one bottle of dye. (as a point of reference, one bottle of dye is exactly the perfect size to treat all of the rubber, plastic and trim on a severely weathered 2000 BMW 323i.)

    Happy Detailing!

    P.s. I wanted to add that when using the dye it is imperative to resist the temptation to apply more and more dye to fix the streaking, PRIOR to each application/layer having had a chance to dry. If you do this, it will flake off sooner or later. Especially if the surface wasn’t prepped as described above.
