Product Details
Trim Kote is the best car trim restorer on the market, it will restore faded black & gray plastic and vinyl trim. Use Trim Kote to restore plastic mirror housings, door, handles, wheel flairs, bumper trim, body side moldings, wind dams, tailgate handles, bed liners, plastic rocker panels, golf cart trim, virtually any exterior plastic or vinyl trim that has a grainy finish to it. 

Trim Kote Car Trim Restorer in packaged in a 16 oz. bottle and is enough product to restore up to 800 door handles! This product is not a “dressing” but an actual dye that will not wash off and should last 1-2 years easily without having to reapply. Before using Trim Kote Car Trim Restorer prepare the area to be restored with rubbing alcohol and mask off that area with safe release painters tape. Drying time is usually about 10-15 minutes depending on the room or outside temperature. Once dry you can apply our Revival conditioner to make the finish “pop.” Reapplying Revival after every other car wash will keep your trim looking new year-round.

Unlike those thinner water-based products that are applied like shoe polish, Trim Kote products are thicker and don't require multiple applications. Trim Kote is a dye, NOT a silicone cover-up. A must-have product for the professional detailer or car enthusiast!

  • A "WOW" Product

    I had been searching for a product to bring back our faded Wrangler plastic panels for months. I tried multiple off the shelf products. All failed to give good overall results. I viewed the DK video and bought the product. I was amazed at how well our jeep looks now. Everyone I discuss this with asks where did I get it. I give them your company's info. Thx! Jeff

  • Trim Kote - Amazing Stuff

    I used this on all the black external lower body trim on my soon to be 11yr old 2007 VW GTI. All of the trim was significantly faded, and this stuff brought it back to literally new. I was amazed. Just make sure you follow the simple cleaning instructions before application.

  • Trim Kote Car Trim Restorer - Black 16 oz

    Product worked great on my 2001 JEEP. My JEEP is always parked outside so the bumpers and trim had faded to a white-gray. Tried three different products from the auto stores that did not work. Years ago I used a shoe polish like product that is no longer stocked at auto stores. Detail King's dye product is what I needed. Thanks for offering a product that actually works.

    I am so happy that I found this trim restorer. I saw a video on Youtube about it and had to try it. It is worth every penny and a little does go a long way! The trim now looks brand new and it is over 20 years old. Thank you so much!

  • car owner - not professional detailer

    This product is great. I have only used it for 2 weeks so I can't say anything about how long it lasts but it is the real deal. I have used it on door handles that were completely grey and now are new black. Something rings true with it's a dye and not just some Armor All type of product that comes off. I have also used it on some interior parts with fantastic results. Love it. The bottle has a nice amount but even with it is empty I will be buying more.

    I never knew they made a product like this. But when I read about I had to try it. It's great stuff. Brings back the black look on my trim. I do have some questions about the after effects so I'm hoping to hear back from someone. But besides that I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to restore the dull trim.

  • Works very well

    It works good, although I find it is much easier to apply it with a microfiber applicator pad. It turns out much smoother and easier to work. Looks very good when finished.

  • Used Car Enthusiast

    I love finding good used cars for myself and my friends. Often, these cars are devalued because the exterior plastic trim is oxidized. Black trim coat does an excellent job of making the plastic look showroom new and the treatment lasts for years. I recommend applying it with an inexpensive 1/2" or 1" foam brush that you can purchase at any paint store. The foam brush gives you accurate placement on edges and allows the product to last longer.

    One of the best things you can do for yourself and for your ride is to improve that dingy set of black bumpers, air dams etc. with a product that really works. It appears the I found such a product. Easy to apply, dries fast and seems to be able to withstand abrasion. Actually sinks into the 'rubber-like' substance instead of looking like a surface paint job.

  • Great Product

    I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler. It sits outside all year round and the fender flares and bumper are always fading from constantly being in the sun. I have tried a lot of products to get them black again, but everything I've used fades after a couple of weeks. I just got the Trim Kote and it darkened them up more than anything else I've tried and looks great! Time will tell how long they stay black.

  • Awesome Product!!

    I have used this product in the past with great results but, it seems you have made the product even better! I had to wait until it stopped freezing here but, when I had a 48 degree day I applied the product and achieved even better results, than before. I had an easier time applying and the finish was as if it was never faded. I can't stress enough to clean your surface. I used rubbing alcohol to remove old oils and previous attempts with dressing to improve the appearance. I am so glad that I just have to clean the surface not cover it up. Great product DK!!

    Our Jet Black 1993 Mazda RX-7 has had a very expensive mechanical rebuild. Now making 300bhp at the rear wheels. The interior is perfect and the paint will "do" for the present. However every piece of plastic-type trim has been bleached by the Arizona sun. I applied DK's Black Trim Kote with a high frade set of oil-painters art-brushes and in one coat - BINGO!! Blackness!! It's not all finished yet and I can't speak to durability as yet. Garage-bound for detailing till the spring. VERY good results so far ... will write again when it's finished and gets a little weather on it. Good Product!!

  • Black trim Kote

    Since no one has done a review here goes, this is the first time using this product. I dyed a jeep patriot rear bumper very weathered looked almost white in spots. Easy to work with doing small area's, dries fast. I used a rag on one half then used a microfiber applicator on the other. Microfiber is a better way to go for a larger area's but its toast when it dries. I can't speak for how it will hold up, it looked very natural.
