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.
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 permanent dye, NOT a silicone cover-up. A must-have product for the professional detailer!

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.Reviewed by: Aaron from Damon. on 5/29/2016
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.Reviewed by: David Ingerman from Vermont. on 5/23/2016
EXTERIOR FINISHING TOUCHES
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.Reviewed by: AARON SULESKE from WINCHESTER. on 12/10/2015

WOW! AMAZING PRODUCT
I have a 2002 Tahoe and the drivers side plastic casing on the mirror was damaged due to a chemical cleaner and it became faded and dull. I spoke to many people at auto part stores and they all told me that I needed to buy a new mirror...well not anymore since the Black Trim Kote did wonders and made the mirror casing look as new!Reviewed by: New Customer from Dallas, TX. on 6/22/2015
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.Reviewed by: Gary Goldade from South Dakota. on 5/14/2015
Black Trim Kote
I am new to auto restoration. I bought the Trim Kote because after checking other trim restore products, the Trim kote was the only product with a more permanent finish on the market.Reviewed by: Darrell Roath from Portland , Maine. on 5/8/2015
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!!Reviewed by: C. Sanford from Tennessee. on 11/17/2014
Product worked great! I have used it on several bumpers and my customers loved it.Reviewed by: Louis Lively from chicago, IL. on 10/13/2014

An Amazing Product
I used the black, but have not had a chance to use the grey yet. This product is amazing. It applies so easy and really works well. I cant believe how much it restored the look of my 2006 f-150. I used it on all the plastic and it really took well. I love this product. Best product out there.Reviewed by: Robb H. from Cypress, TX. on 2/4/2014

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!!Reviewed by: Dr Terry Patterson from Washington DC area. on 1/5/2014
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.Reviewed by: Tim from Erial. on 7/18/2013
